SummaryPolice responded to 911 call from house. The victim, Dicky Hamby, was inside and came out. Hamby was shot twice in the stomach. Hamby's girlfriend later told media that officers told her: "Supposedly he just had a shirt in his hand, or his hands were up under his shirt, and that's what made them think he had a weapon and then told them he was going to shoot them." The single article that appears on this shooting said Hamby "underwent surgery" and was "awake" later that day. As this article is apparently the only information that appears on this shooting, there is no further information about his recovery. Hamby had a previous arrest/conviction record (driving w/suspended license, misdemeanor drug possession -- he was jailed for these two, and was "convicted" of assaulting a women in 2000). Police said they had "responded" to the home five times since March 2012. The two officers involved in the shooting were placed on paid administrative leave. N.B. I checked "white" and "not hispanic" in race section based on appearance only (in the video that accompanied the article). The article does not actually mention the victim's race.
