One person died and two others were shot in the parking lot of an Arizona Walmart, according to a video released Friday.

The shooting occurred during a fight between up to eight members of the Gaver family and at least four police officers. The video was captured by a dashboard camera and indicated the fight lasted for about seven minutes.

The fight happened after police were called to the Cottonwood, Ariz., Walmart on March 21 after a call reported that multiple suspects assaulted a female employee in the store. When officers arrived, the suspects were in the parking lot and attacked them, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

Cottonwood Police Chief Jody Fanning said that during the brawl, Enoch Gaver, 21, disarmed Sgt. Jeremy Daniels and shot him in the leg. He said Gaver was still armed with Daniels’ gun when officer Rick Hicks started hitting him with a baton.

After Hicks determined the baton had no effect, he resorted to shooting Gaver to death, Fanning said. Hicks also shot and wounded David Gaver, who had been on top of Daniels and had charged toward Hicks, Fanning said.

Hicks initially was placed on leave after the March 21 shooting, but he went back on patrol Friday night.

        Being unable to see the whole video (see above), I didn’t see anything about the faith of these people in the bits I saw, nor did I see anything in the OP about it.
        For all we know, the Gavers could all be atheists and the cops are all Christians.

          If you had clicked the link in the 1st sentence of the story you would have found out all you needed to know.
          “The Gaver family is well-known in Boise, where at least three members played in a Christian band called Matthew 24 Now outside an Albertsons supermarket and posted signs with a biblical verse.”

            Ok, thanks Gindy51 and whatthe46 for the information. I appreciate the correction. I’d prefer to edit my comment, but then one might not be able to understand y’all’s.
            The behavior described is certainly deplorable, and unfortunately one of them had to pay with his life. We just saw that with Michael Brown, who also lost his life after attacking a po-lice. I can’t recall if Brown was a member of any particular faith.

            I looked at the article and did not see anything that indicated their faith had anything to do with it. Is there something I missed?

          • whatthe46 April 12th, 2015 at 6:12 pm

            michael brown did not attack a lying racist cop. the lying racist cop attacked him first! then he murdered him by shooting him when he was at least 30 feet away. how you people justify that bs is beyond reason.

          • burqa April 12th, 2015 at 6:53 pm

            The video evidence showed Brown’s belligerent attitude and sense of entitlement to other people’s property in the store he robbed and assaulted the store employee at the door.
            Brown went on to show the same lawless attitude when he not only refused to get out of the middle of the street, but also when he attacked the cop in his squad car. The forensic evidence shows that and so did the testimony of witnesses.
            Brown then broke more laws lby fleeing and refusing to obey a lawful command. The forensic evidence and testimony of witnesses showed Brown then turned around and was charging the cop. He was not surrendering. he was going back to resume the assault.

            I do not recall any evidence that showed the cop was a racist. Above you corrected me on another issue, for which I am grateful. Please give me the evidence that Wilson is a racist.
            Wilson defended himself against a lawless, belligerent attacker who refused to surrender, but instead attempted to renew the attack.

            The forensic evidence and testimony of witnesses confirmed we were lied to by Brown’s friends which led many to draw false conclusions. Many of these people who were lied to did not do the logical thing which is to change one’s opinion when newer, better evidence comes to light.

            All 3 autopsies, including the one commissioned by Brown’s family, showed he was not standing still with his arms raised in the air when he was shot dead in the back by Wilson. That was a lie. that led to many others being arrested and rioting to ensue during which many innocent people were victimized when their places of business were looted and destroyed.
            Brown’s friends who told those lies should be held accountable for the results of their lies.

            you have issues. yeah, i’m going to believe a lying racist cop who did the same thing to another black man, by driving up next to him while he was walking and driving off while he had a hold of him. you can’t in anyway, shape form or fashion, equate michael brown to these a&&holes! try as you might. you’ll just look like a damn fool.

          • burqa April 12th, 2015 at 7:42 pm

            We both have issues and we are both discussing them.
            I agree the 2 situations are not identical, but where they are similar is in both someone attacked a cop and got shot doing so.
            In both cases the person killed would be alive had they complied with lawful orders.

          • whatthe46 April 12th, 2015 at 8:42 pm

            STOP SAYING HE ATTACKED THIS BASTARD! you are relying on a proven racist to give you facts as he wants you to believe they are. i’m done with you on this issue because you are obviously a racist pig lover.

          • burqa April 12th, 2015 at 9:00 pm

            The forensic evidence and the testimony of witnesses shw Brown attacked Wilson.

            I patiently await with interest the evidence you have that Wilson is a racist.It should not be hard to find, given the nature of racism. Racism manifests itself as a sort of obsession. The racist, like the bigot, seems to feel compelled to make sure everyone knows how they feel. They just can’t leave it alone so there will be a trail of previous examples where they expressed their bigotry.

            It is regrettable all you have is name-calling. I’m sure that is impressive at the 7th grade lunch table.
            Choose that path if you wish, but be assured I will not follow suit. Employing superior manners to those of a debate opponent only strengthens my argument and diving into the gutter weakens theirs.

            “Good arguments always suffer by being urged with ill manners, and many a righteous cause has been weakend by an ill-bred way of managing it.”
            – William Byrd II, July 22, 1736, from “The Correspondence of the Three William Byrds of Westover, Virginia 1684-1776, Volume II,” edited by Marion Tinling (University Press of Virginia, Charlottesville, 1977), page 497

            In the near future at least, I shall proceed on the presumption that a fever has temporarily seized you and this bit of name-calling is out of character. I forgive you for it while anticipating enjoyable exchanges with you to come.

          they are a christian band. and even if they weren’t, do you get the point i made?

          • burqa April 12th, 2015 at 4:15 pm

            Yes, I saw the correction by Gindy51 (below) and that from you. I appreciate being corrected.
            Sorry, I don’t get the point you made. I’ve seen the expression “true Christian” and now “real Christian” and have no idea what they mean.
            Christianity as I understand it recognizes our flaws and various errors, often dealing with misunderstanding our doctrine, occupies most of the part of the Bible addressed to us. We see ourselves as a group of screw-ups, trying to make our way, and that some are further down that path than others. Pointing fingers at us or each other doesn’t really do much good, we already know we’re sinners.
            Indeed, finger-pointing, name-calling and other invective does little more than keep a person in error, thus bringing some responsibility on the person doing the finger-pointing.
            The better way is to build them up, and this is not done by tearing them down, even though that is what the rest of the herd is doing..

    Buffering galore before I could click off the first ad, followed by more buffering before I could click off the second ad, followed by even more buffering before I could skip the third ad, then what amounted to still photos where I couldn’t see anything and little blurred video where I just threw up my hands and abandoned trying to see the damned thing.
