The victim, Keith Vidal, was schizophrenic, weighed 90 pounds, had already been tased, and reportedly was being held down by two officers when the shooting happened. He was armed with a “tiny screwdriver,” according to his family.
His dad claims that one cop said “we don’t have time for this” right before the kid was shot dead on the floor.
According to the report, the first unit on scene was a Boiling Spring Lakes officer who arrived at 12:34 p.m. He was joined shortly after by two additional BSL officers and a Brunswick County Sheriff’s Deputy.
The first unit on scene reported a confrontation in the hallway, but told Brunswick County Dispatchers several times that everything was OK.
