  1. Sorry but these officers should concentrate on their mission! Not knowing what apartment they are supposed to check. Walking onto a target with their radio volume on max as to inform the target that they are on their way! Four officers in crossfire situation! Really??

  2. i can't believe that cop returned to the doorway and was just staring down at the body instead of scanning for a #2 shooter in the apartment.

    Wow

  3. wow i thought it was friendly fire cuz of da crazy crossfire setup they had goin on….given the situation it could have been alot worse….officers could have shot each other till da last man stood….crazy set up…im sure they will look at the tape and do some training…so glad that punk is down and no officers were killed over a pos

  4. Nobody is talking about how the primary rifle dropped his mag when the shots were first fired? Then proceeded to clear the area with no magazine? 😂

  5. Sweet Jesus !! The crossfire is crazy … why would you knock on a door where you on a shots fire call without a ballistic shield ? Amazing … no tactics here …I’m glad that cop is going to be ok .. my god practice your tactics your life depends on it …
