Even then, "shoot to wound" is not a thing. It hasn't been for ages. We all know EOF; if you're at the point where you have guns up, you're shooting to kill. Centre of mass, rounds forward until the threat drops.
Shoot to wound is a fantasy set up by Hollywood and people who have never had a weapon pointed at them.
You’re out of your lane and giving incorrect info. Police don’t “shoot to kill” any more than we “shoot to wound”. If deadly force is used, it’s to stop a threat of death or grievous bodily harm. That’s what the law allows. That means we shoot to stop the subject’s behaviour that’s presenting that threat. When we can’t articulate that we still reasonably perceive that threat, our authority to use deadly force stops. That’s how Forcillo from Toronto Police ate a criminal conviction in the Sammy Yatim shooting. His first shots were justified; his second series of shots after the threat changed was not.
If deadly force is lawfully used, then whether they live or die is an incidental result to the behaviour change.
I don’t have enough accurate info to comment on Uvelde and who did what when. I don’t trust most of the info that’s out there enough to hang an opinion on it. I’ll just say, in general terms, as someone who has instructed active shooter, that up here if there’s an active threat to life, the expectation is you go in, even alone if you have to.
TTPs vary and I won’t elaborate on them, but active shooter response is all about - same thing - changing the behaviour away from threat to innocent life. Maybe they switch from slaughtering kids and fight cops. Shitty, but still an improvement. Maybe they barricade and it becomes a negotiator / tactical call with a team immediately ready to take the door on a moment’s notice. Sometimes, on becoming aware of police presence, the subject will suicide, and that’s fine too.
But all of these are predicated by moving swiftly to the threat based on the best info you have- shots, screams, fleeing victims/witnesses, blood trails, 911 call info, or whatever intelligence you have. You move to the threat with every intention of winning a one on one fight where only one person will walk away and it ain’t gonna be the other guy.
