LETTER: Officers fire 38 rounds, hit man’s elbow

The Sept. 23 Review-Journal included an article about a police shooting in which two officers confronted a man holding a firearm. In the details, the article said that, between the two officers, 38 rounds were fired at the suspect. He was hit … in the elbow.

I understand that police are trained to immobilize suspects and not to kill them. But not even one shot out of 38 hits an area that might stop a person? What firearm training does Metro give its officers? Amazing.
