A man was recently shot dead while he was in bed.
Dustin Theoharis was asleep when Department of Corrections officer, and King County Sherriff’s deputy rushed into his house, busted into his bedroom and began to unload their pistols on the sleeping man.
Reports has it that two officers fired over 20 rounds of which 16 landed in Mr. Theoharis who suffered a broken shoulder, 2 broken arms, broken legs. He also had a compression fracture to his spine, damage to his liver and spleen.
According to reports, Theoharis was not the guy the police were after. The King County Sheriff’s deputy and Washington Department of Corrections officer who shot him were at the house to arrest a man who’d violated his parole. But in a search of the house after the shooting, they surprised Theoharis in the basement room he was renting.
A neighbour had this to say about the incident: “They (the officers) rushed into that room like they were going to get somebody. I mean they rushed down there and then all of a sudden. Boom, boom, boom, boom.”
Dustin Theoharis has undergone 12 surgeries.
