TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A Toledo police officer shot and killed a man around 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the 1000 block of Page Street in north Toledo.
At a press conference, it was announced that two officers patrolling the area say they came across Thomas Bean, 43, holding a shotgun to the head of Valerie Williams, 27. Officers Tom Reinhart and Jason Picking immediately drew their weapons and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon several times.
That's when Bean allegedly pointed the shotgun towards police, and officer Reinhart fired seven shots at him. One hit Bean's shotgun, and a few hit Bean himself. Bean died from his injuries after stumbling into his home.
"The officers saved her life. According to her, her last thoughts were she would never see her children again," said Deputy Chief Donald Kenney.
Police say the shotgun was not loaded, but there was live ammunition in his home. They also say the situation played out in about 30 seconds of high stress, and the officers had to revert to their training to disable the threat.
Neighbors and family members say the man had recently purchased the home on Page Street, and was in the process of remodeling the inside.
Bean has a lengthy criminal record that goes back about 20 years.
A witness says he heard police tell Bean to drop his weapon, and when he did not, police fired. The shooting is being considered justified, but both officers are on administrative leave pending an investigation.
"I think they did an excellent job. You know, they didn't have much time to react, and the victim herself, personally thanked them for saving her life," said Kenney.
Bean's daughter, Tiffany, feels the killing of her father was unjustified.
"I just want answers, you know? Why? Why did they shoot my dad so many times? Like, why did it take so many times? You guys could have shot him twice and got him down," she said.
Toledo police say when they are met with a lethal threat they respond in kind.
Tiffany Bean says she does not want her father remembered for violence and has a message for the woman he held at gunpoint.
"I apologize, you know. I apologize for him because no one has the right to point a gun at anyone, you know? I do understand that. But I don't know what she did to cause my father to point a gun at her," said Bean.
Officers say they are also unsure what started the argument between Williams and Bean.
