When I was a Partol officer I was dispatched to a shooting call with three victims. When I arrived in scene I came in contact with a party that was holding a gun. He dropped the gun, made it safe and put his hands behind his head. When I approached this person he stated he was defending himself and his family when someone came by and started shooting at them. Believing his story and seeing the gun had no more ammunition in it and he was cooperating I left him with the "safeL weapon to help the injured. It was discovered in my dash cam that he got up, grabbed the weapon and handed it to another officer in scene. My mistake was believing his story and not placing him in handcuffs. He could of been the shooter. However, luck may have it, he was the victim. This mistake still haunts me today considering I could of got a lot of officers/citizens hurt.
