Police killing of Raymond Garcia justified despite 17 shots fired, 7 hits, DA says

Last month, we reported about the police killing of a "customer" during a prostitution sting in Greeley.

Now, Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck has released a letter about the incident in which he details why he feels the shooting of the man, 31-year-old Raymond Garcia, was justified. The document, on view below, reveals that Garcia was drawing a weapon and on drugs when cops shot seventeen bullets in his direction, striking him seven times.
