Tucson Police Officer Shoots Man In A Wheelchair 9 Times In The Back

Warning: Very Graphic

A Tucson Police officer has been fired after a deadly officer-involved shooting on Valencia Road Monday evening.

Just before 6 p.m., a theft was reported to an off-duty officer who was working a special duty assignment at Walmart on Valencia Road, near Oak Tree Drive, according to the department.

A Walmart employee reported to the off-duty officer that a man in a motorized wheelchair had stolen a tool box. According to the employee, he caught up with the suspect in the parking lot to ask for a receipt, during the exchange the suspect brandished a knife.

Off-duty officer Ryan Remington went to the parking lot and asked the suspect to surrender his knife but he refused, according to the department. The suspect then continued through the Walmart parking lot and started to enter the garden center-area at a nearby Lowe's, during that time another officer arrived at the scene to assist.

Both officers had told the suspect not to enter the store; however, the suspect did not comply with the orders and Ofc. Remington fired nine rounds, striking him in the back and side, resulting in the suspect falling out of his chair onto the ground.

Officers did render aid to the suspect but he was pronounced dead at the scene, police say. The suspect was identified as 61-year-old Richard Lee Richards.
