Montgomery County Police have determined that an officer who fatally shot a man in 2018 was justified in using lethal force.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Officer Anand Badgujar was in “grave danger” when Robert White charged at the officer. The memo also points out White escalated the situation and the body cam shows Badgujar backing up as White rushes toward him.
White did not have a gun, but police did find a knife in his pocket.
The body cam also suggests Badgujar was concerned White may have been mentally-ill and that things could escalate to a ‘suicide by cop’ situation.
