then tried to carjack a pickup. When a Metro Police officer comes across the suspect walking away from the area of the alleged criminal offense, Caleb Edward Blaylock, 27, seems cutting himself. Blaylock continues to stroll, neglecting commands to drop the knife.” He’s actively stabbing

himself, “Officer William Pollock tells a dispatch operator as he continues to follow him with his cruiser on Rancho Drive in the north valley. Then, Blaylock turns unexpectedly and hurries the officer, who fires two rounds. Pollock, who prior to the shooting was able to

open the chauffeur’s door and pull his weapon from his holster, caught the shooting

on his body-worn video camera. The images reveal Blaylock holding the cruiser’s door with his left hand while his right hand is stretched out in a swinging movement, holding exactly what would later on appear to be a butter knife. Blaylock falls next to the chauffeur’s door. Stop! Stop!”Pollard shouts. But Blaylock doesn’t comply and begins to get on his knees, raising his knife in a threatening matter

“as if he’s going to stab “Pollard, so 4 more rounds are fired, said Clark
