According to police, Perry Stephens walked out of an auto parts
store and grabbed his .45-caliber handgun after hearing a man yell
for help. The citizen in distress was an off-duty police officer
working as an escort for a funeral procession. The officer had
pulled a man over for illegally entering the line of mourners, and
the man became irate over the traffic ticket he was issued, knocking
the officer to the ground and throwing punches at his face. As the
officer cried for help a second time, Stephens ordered the man to
get off the policeman. When he did not comply, Stephens shot the man
four times in the chest and again ordered him to get off the
officer, who had also shot the man once. Incredibly, the man
continued his assault, stephens shot him in the head, killing him.
