Colorado Police Shooting Body Camera

Another successful shooting caught on body camera by a Trinidad, Colorado Police Officer. The suspect, identified as Todd Jamal Dye, was hiding in a vacant trailer. When the officer discovered him, Dye pulled a gun on the Officer. The Officer used a Sig Sauer, althought I can’t quite make out which Sig it is. It looks like a 226 with a light rail. Like many other shootings, the Officer could not remember how many times he fired his weapon. Only that he stopped shooting when the suspect was no longer a threat. The Officer shot Dye 5 times if Dye was unable to get a shot off.

    Is it normal procedure for the regular officers to remove the body? I thought csi or the coroner did that. It seemed awfully quick for the body to be removed. Wasn't there supposed to be an investigation from ia because of the officer involved shooting? Or have I seen took many cop shows? I can't shake the feeling they seemed rushed to remove the body.

    Also, was his last name really Dye? Irony, no?

    The nine mm has enough stopping power.
    Five shots later the perp (homeless man) is still moaning in the last throes of dying (the moaning) The Perp was stopped fro using his weapon by the Police with the nine mm.
