Officer Patrick Tuter crashed his car into Michael Vincent Allen’s truck in Mesquite, TX yesterday after an extended attempt to chase down the latter. What happened directly after the stop, we’re not quite sure of, potentially because Mesquite PD deleted the photos detailing it. But we do know how the encounter ended — Allen is dead after Tuter discharged about 41 shots.
Mitchell Wallace and and his family witnessed the incident:
After Allen pulled into a driveway at the end of a cul-de-sac in an attempt to make a U-turn, his truck was pinned between two police cars with one of the police cars striking Allen’s truck from the front, said Wallace’s 17-year-old son, Cameron.
‘From the time they yelled, ‘Get out, get out,’ they didn’t give him three seconds to get out,’ Mitchell Wallace said, adding that he counted about 20 bullet holes in Allen’s truck.
