Funny what the "news" media leaves out of their "stories". Sounds like another clean shoot....... Thank you Officer James Peters.

SCOTTSDALE - The Scottsdale police officer who shot and killed a suspect Tuesday night has been involved in 7 shootings -- 6 of them deadly.
It’s a number that surprises even some of the most veteran law enforcement officers.
Police tell us they received reports about 50-year-old John Loxas threatening neighbors with a gun. When they arrived to a home near Hayden and McKellips they found Loxas standing in the doorway -- holding his 9-month-old grandson in his arms.
Loxas reached down, and that's when Officer James Peters, a 12-year veteran, opened fire killing him.
The baby was unharmed.
Police later searched the home and found a loaded pistol a few feet away from his body, along with a shotgun, ammunition, and an explosive.
Police say Officer Peters and another officer reported seeing a black object in Loxas's hands just before the shooting.
