What we know about the shooting

A Walmart employee shortly after 6 p.m. on Nov. 29 reported Richards was suspected of shoplifting a toolbox, officials previously said. Remington, working off-duty as security at Walmart, responded.

According to the employee, when asked to show a receipt, Richards pulled out a knife and said, "Here's your receipt." Richards, in his motorized wheelchair, then headed toward the Lowe's store across the parking lot in south Tucson, Arizona, officials said.

Remington followed Richards around the parking lot and can be seen on video calling for backup because Richards "pulled a knife on me."

Officer Stephanie Taylor responded, arriving at the scene as Remington was approaching Richards near the Lowe's entrance.

Footage from her body-worn camera shows her running out of her vehicle toward Richards.  "You need to stop," someone is heard saying, and then, "He's got his knife in his other hand."

If we spent an equivalent amount of half as much.money on mental health services, elderly care services, and services for the disabled as we do on the police then maybe this guy wouldnt have been trying to kill himself and that cop wouldnt have been put into a situation like that in the first place

Neither the original police statement on the incident last week nor the update issued Monday provided details regarding how many troopers were involved or how many shots were fired , nor did the statements offer any description of the injuries the man sustained. After Burlingham was shot , troopers rendered first aid, according to police , and he was transported to UPMC Hamot in Erie. "Upon conclusion of this investigation the Crawford County District Attorney will review the case, all forensic reports, and make a charging recommendation," an update from police stated on Monday.

As Remington says, "Do not go to the store, sir," Taylor draws her gun, too.

Video captured by Lowe's security cameras show Richards entering the store in a wheelchair followed by the two officers with their guns drawn a few feet behind him.

"Stop now. You need to —" Taylor begins saying but is interrupted by Remington firing his gun.

Richards was facing away from the officers when Remington fired his gun nine times at Richards' back and side, body camera footage shows.

Richards immediately fell out of the wheelchair as Remington rushed toward him and handcuffed the man, who remained crumpled on the ground.

Who is ex-officer Remington?

Remington had been with the Tucson Police Department for four years. In a statement, Storie that Remington “had no nonlethal options."

"He did have a Taser, but in his mind, he couldn’t use it because he didn’t feel he had the proper spread to deploy it, with the wheelchair between him and Richards,” Storie said.

"To be very clear, I am deeply disturbed and troubled by officer Remington's actions," Magnus said at a news conference after the shooting. "His use of deadly force in this incident is a clear violation of department policy and directly contradicts multiple aspects of our use of force and training."

Tucson Mayor Regina Romero said Remington’s actions were “unconscionable and indefensible” and the county attorney’s office has her support as it proceeds with its investigation.

The shooting happened a day after Tucson police announced it was investigating another incident involving an off-duty officer who restrained two women on the ground outside a restaurant.
