SummaryThe officer encountered Hamilton laying on the ground. The officer helped him to his feet — and was attempting to conduct a field interview. The officer was patting him down when a struggle ensued. The officer withdrew his wooden baton to defend himself, and Hamilton took the officer’s baton from him and began striking him in the head. That’s when the officer withdrew his .40 caliber Smith & Wesson and fired “several shotsâ€ù at Hamilton — striking him several times
