Criminal Justice Quote: Iceland Police Use Deadly Force--For the First Time

Iceland police [in Reykjavik] have used deadly force for the first time ever, shooting and killing a man in an event which Icelandic officials are saying "is without precedent."…Officials say the victim, a 59-year-old man who had been threatening neighbors, forced police to evacuate the building. Shortly after the evacuation the man began firing at officers with a shotgun. The police fired tear gas canisters through the windows….After some time, officers entered the building and were fired upon, forcing them to shoot back. [This police involved shooting took place on December l, 2013.]
