What to Do After the Shooting Stops

You have an intruder in your house and you end up shooting them. You are walking down the street and someone threatens you with a gun, Crime Sceneyou end up shooting them.  You need to know what to do after the shooting stops.

Watch the whole video, this could make the difference whether you have your freedom or not after an incident like this.

Write/type this list up on an index card, laminate it, and keep it in your wallet/purse. When the stress and adrenaline hits you. You won't remember this stuff in your head.

Five Points of a Shooting Aftermath

1. “Officer this man/woman attacked me”
2. “I will sign the complaint”

3. Point out evidence. Evidence being handgun, spent casing, knife, deadly object
4. Point out witnesses there. i.e. security cameras, people etc.
5. “Officer you will have my full cooperation within 24 hrs after speaking with an Attorney”
6. I added this cause some of you nuts don't believe this. Watch your attitude when speaking to the police and If the cop asks you for ID, just give it to him. This is serious shit and now's not the time to scream and rant about the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

Watch the video and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    Great information and very important to fully understand before you are faced with the immediate aftermath of a deadly force situation.

  4. Deaf people problems…

    “go a little to it more than churros”…i hate the closed captions on these.

  5. Always tell the officers, “I was in imminent fear for my life (or a loved ones)”. Then speak with a criminal defense attorney immediately!!!

    Thank you for sharing!

  7. Karen Puckett says:

    Great information. Thanks

  8. Some good info in the video,thanks.

  9. Dave Bartley says:

    I feel there should be a 6th step. The victim should give the person he/she is calling a code word, so if there is confusion with whom the victim is, the code word can be asked.

  10. Good info….. what would be even better if you could expand on your video presentation, actually doing reenactment of both sides showing from beginning to end of the police arriving and the person doing what you’re not supposed to do, to the end of being put into the police vehicle. Then showing the correct way of when the police arrive and what you should do by putting the gun down and so forth. I feel that if the general populace would see a video like that, they could actually visualize what the actual what to do would be. Thank you for all the information you do provide for us
