Chandler, Arizona — On November 23, 2022, at 11:57 a.m., Chandler Police received a 911 call of a suspicious vehicle backed into a resident’s driveway. The resident, who was not home, was viewing their home video surveillance after a motion detection alert, when they observed the vehicle. The resident had observed a male, later identified as 30-year-old Cody Allan Smestad, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, wearing a white mask, and white pants, inside the home. The resident reported the male was carrying a hammer. Officers arrived and positioned at the front of the home, near the unoccupied suspect vehicle and west garage, waiting for additional units to arrive. An assisting detective arrived and took a position to the south looking into the back yard of the home.
The officers at the front of the home heard noises inside the garage and minutes later the garage door opened. Inside officers observed Smestad hiding behind the rear of a vehicle. Officers issued commands to Smestad ordering him to show his hands and not move. Smestad ignored these commands and ran back inside the home. The second officer proceeded down the side of the home into the backyard. The detective ordered Smestad numerous times to disarm himself, but he did not comply. As Smestad began positioning himself around the corner armed with the rifle, the detective looking into the backyard feared for the life of the officer in the backyard and fired on Smestad resulting in the first officer shooting.
Both officers continued giving order to Smestad to disarm himself for approximately thirty seconds, but Smestad did not comply. Smestad moved around the patio still armed, not complying with the police commands, where he turned his body toward the second officer. The second officer perceived an imminent threat resulting in the second officer shooting striking Smestad. Police secured Smestad, removed him to the front and provided medical aid until the arrival of the fire department personnel. A search of the home was conducted, and no additional suspects were found. Smestad was later pronounced deceased at a local hospital. No officers or community members were injured during this incident.

Un acceptable! He gave up right when they shot him. That's heartbreaking. He said I know, then bang bang. WTF
Mr. Smestad's actions are supported and glorified by the democrat party.
Stay Safe Blue
Stay armed and frosty Amerika.
That cop waited long time to say that
Police are taking out the trash again 😂😂😂
that is type of cop i want to show up when i call for help man fr
Found him on Facebook. Seems to come from a religious and succesfull family. Dad is president of an aviation company, brother and sisters all are married and working, one of them is a country singer…. His Facebook is bleak w no information really. I wonder if drugs were a part of his life. Sad man
So the residence owner was not home at the time, saw all this remotely and called the police.
Sounds like our suspect missed him.
Commands, concise and clear…😄⚫️🔵⚫️👊🏻🇺🇸
Snap crackle pop.
And the Darwin Award goes to…
Damn the cops wife must be happy the way he pulls the trigger 😂🙈
Put the gun down…..simple, but no……..🙄
I don't think this was a run-of-the-mill burglary, if he brought the rifle (although it's possible he stole it from inside the residence). Conspicuous bit of kit to bring, and keeps the hands full if you're there for loot. I think this was targeted, and he was looking to harm someone. Also the pure soy in his voice makes it clear that he's not some gangster; sounds more like an incel.
Seems the only way to fix stupid is with a little bit of lead.
Well looks like Timmy found something that day…called reality
Another POS gone from the world. Thank you officers.
Dang his trigger finger has a controller mod.
Hopefully no AR pistols were harmed in this video.
Another one bites the dust…
Damn 15 shots
I'd say those first 2 shots that missed him were warning enough. If he didn't understand after that… fuck him.
