A woman standing about 10 feet from her boyfriend when he was shot by a Modesto police officer last week in their home said Tuesday he never threatened the officers.
"I'm angry as hell. They didn't have to hurt him," she said. "We call the police when we need help. We need cops, but I think they took this situation and handled it wrong."
Brian Reed, a 41-year-old trucker, was shot in his home in the 1800 block of Hagstrom Court on Thursday after police went there to check on his welfare because he was threatening to kill himself.
