SummaryFour officers responded to a call from Cookson’s wife that her husband was attacking her, and that he was suicidal and was threatening to kill police officers who responded, or force them to kill him, the district attorney’s report said. Cookson charged at the officers, holding a nine-pound rock over his head. An attempt to subdue him with a Taser failed. He advanced within several feet of one officer, and believing that officer’s life was in danger, Officer Ron Van Cleave fired two rounds.
