Police shoot and kill armed man on my road

Live by the gun, die by the gun. These body cameras are well worth it to officers IMO.

York County: York-Poquoson Sheriff's Department ID man killed by deputy

A 26-year-old man was shot and killed by a York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office deputy Wednesday morning after he pulled a gun on the deputy.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office identified the man as Damien A. Harrell of Newport News. Harrell has an extensive criminal history, officials said.

The incident happened about 6:30 a.m. along the York County section of Fort Eustis Boulevard near Richneck Road.

Video from the deputy's body camera, provided by the sheriff's department during a press conference, shows Harrell reaching to his right side and pulling out a handgun.

The deputy then fired six shots, hitting Harrell at least twice in the upper torso, officials said.

Harrell was taken to Riverside Hospital in Newport News where he died.

No deputies were injured during the shooting, according to officials.

The incident started as what York-Poquoson Sheriff J.D. "Danny" Diggs described as a "casual encounter" to gather some basic information about a car accident they were investigating.

Witnesses said the white Ford Crown Victoria hit a puddle of water on the roadway and spun into the median. Deputies investigating the crash spotted Harrell about 200 yards away walking down the road.

On the video, when the deputies asked him about the accident, Harrell denied he was involved. He also provided them with an incorrect name and age.

The body camera shows the deputies asking Harrell several times for his correct identity after they were unable to confirm the information he gave them.

"Things just don't add up," one deputy said in the video.

The deputies told Harrell that as long as he gave them the correct information, he wouldn't be in trouble, but if he refused, they'd have to arrest him.

"Tell me who you are, or I'll put some bracelets on you, and you can go to jail," the deputy said.

Harrell then gave the deputies a different name, which officials later said was also false.

The video shows that when one deputy went to check that information, Harrell stood up from the guardrail he was sitting on. The deputy instructed him to sit down and asked if he could pat him down, but he refused.

The deputy reminded Harrell to keep his hands where he could see them. But then he reached to his right side and pulled out a .380 caliber Bersa semi-automatic gun.


Within seconds the deputy shot Harrell.

Shaking, the deputy immediately called for medics.

During the press conference, officials said a second person who was in the car accident ran toward Harrell. The deputies told the him to stop, but he did not comply. They used a stun gun to stop him, officials said.

He was taken to the Mary Immaculate Hospital in Newport News to be evaluated after the incident, they said.

No charges have been filed against the unidentified second person.

Newport News Police Department spokeswoman Holly McPherson confirmed Harrell was wanted out of Newport News for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, assault and failure to appear. There was an advisory on his wanted entry to use caution that he was armed and dangerous with violent tendencies. She added that he also had an emergency protective order on file.

Harrell was sentenced in 2006 on robbery and firearms charges out of Newport News and served at least two years in prison, York officials said at the news conference. He was supposed to appear in court on new charges this month, but he did not show, they said.

The deputy who shot the man is in his 30s and has more than five years experience, according to officials. He has been with the sheriff's office for three years and worked at a neighboring jurisdiction for about two years, they said.

Diggs described him as "a highly-trained professional deputy who was certainly at his best this morning."

"I'm glad it was a well-trained deputy sheriff instead of me out there this morning," Diggs said. "This is the kind of danger that law enforcement officers across the nation encounter every day."

The deputies involved will be put on administrative leave to "decompress" from the incident, Diggs said.

"It's not easy to take someone's life," he said.

The sheriff's office is not requesting an outside investigation into the incident because of the body camera footage. That video is worth "millions," Diggs said.

"This shows an unbiased, unedited account of the events as they occurred," he said. "I am 100 percent confident in the capabilities of my office to investigate this."

All uniformed patrol personnel with the sheriff's office, and four school resource officers, wear body cameras, said Lt. Dennis Ivey, York-Poquoson Sheriff's Department spokesman.

Ivey said many of the patrol personnel were issued body cameras in November 2014, with all patrol staff receiving body cameras by February.

"We were way out in the forefront of this," Diggs said.

The last shooting that involved a York-Poquoson Sheriff's deputy was in 2009, officials said. They believe the person in that incident wanted to kill himself, they said.

Williamsburg I think. It's not bad, kind of a quiet sleepy tourist town.
