* (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) *
Surprise, Arizona — On March 28, 2023, The Surprise Police Department received a call of a male refusing to leave the parking lot of a local business. The officer walked up to the vehicle and spoke to the man, 28-year-old Joseph Martin through the open driver side rear door. Martin began yelling at the officer, as the officer asked him questions. At one point, the officer asked him if he had any weapons in the vehicle and the man yelled, “I am the weapon”, and later began to yell “you are all pedophiles”. The officer told Martin several times, that he needed to leave the parking lot. The officer requested another police unit, to respond to the call.

While the first officer continued to try and speak with Martin, a uniform Sergeant arrived and the sergeant also attempted to engage Martin in conversation. Soon thereafter, Martin began to scream at the officers and tried to close the car door, while he was still inside the vehicle. The officer and Sergeant, prevented the door from closing and attempted to remove Martin from the vehicle. As the first officer reached towards Martin, he yelled that he had a gun. As he yelled this, Martin reached his right hand, toward his waistband, at the same time Martin grabbed the officer’s holster. This is when the officer-involved shooting occurred. Martin was removed from the vehicle and officers attempted life-saving measures, until the fire department arrived. Martin died at the scene. During the investigation, a handgun was found in the man’s right front pants pocket.

  1. At first, I didn't understand why he was called a "Surprise Police Officer" in the title until I found out that there was a town in Arizona named Surprise.

  2. I'm torn on this one
    Crazy guy says he has a gun and gets shot. Officer took the action he needed to be safe from the crazy guy.
    Me as a legally armed citizen, first off when approached by the police is to tell them you are armed. I'd be pissed if they just shot me for disclosing that information.
    I really am torn on this because I understand the officers actions but again how would he react if I was just a normal dude who was doing 56 in a 55?

  3. The "reach for the police officer's gun" intrusive thoughts in everyone hopefully calmed down after watching this. Incredible response from the officer, immediately acting to protect.

  4. People like him should be locked up in a mental hospital instead of on the streets. If we locked people like him in a mental facility they would not harm others or be shot by the cops.

  5. Talk about appropriate… City of Surprise (the badge in the upper left at video start)? Wow. Just wow. Why were these police officers forced to placate a subject that is obviously mental.

  6. Obese female cop who makes bad decisions. This is negligent homicide, at worst civilly. They need to lose their jobs.

  7. Just the kind of guy you want camping drunk in your parking lot. Legend has it, you can still hear "PEDOPHILES" in the wind..
