At 5:12 a.m., dispatchers got 9-1-1 calls about a man with a gun at a McDonald’s. One caller followed George Smith who claimed to have an AK 47. At 5:15 a.m., Deputy Austin Oskey arrived and tried to talk with Smith, ordering him to drop his gun. Deputy Deryk Alexander then arrived with a shield team and carried a less-lethal shotgun. He fired three rounds at Smith from 72 feet away and hit Smith twice. Those shots did not incapacitate Smith, and he allegedly tried to aim his gun at law enforcement. Deputy Oskey was at back of the vehicle and fired four rounds, killing Smith.
