John Crawford

Ohio police fatally shot John Crawford, 22, after he spotted holding a toy rifle in a local Walmart earlier this week, reports Raw Story.

Crawford was in the toy section at Walmart’s Beavercreek location when a customer called 911 to report a man waving “what appeared to be an AR-15 at children and others.”

“He said he was at the video games playing videos, and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,” said LeeCee Johnson, the mother of Crawford’s children, who was on the phone with him the entire time. “The next thing I know, he said, ‘It’s not real,’ and the police start shooting, and they said ‘Get on the ground,’ but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.”

“I could hear him just crying and screaming,” Johnson said. “I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.”

Crawford, who, according to his girlfriend, went to the store to get ingredients for S’mores, was reportedly holding a MK-177 (.177 caliber) BB/Pellet Rifle when he was gunned down.

“He looked like he was going to go violently,” said Ronald Ritchie, the former marine who called police. “If he would have dropped the weapon, he could have came out with his life, but unfortunately, he didn’t.”

The police department is showing no remorse over Crawford’s slaying.

According to police chief Dennis Evers, Officers Sean Williams and David Darkow acted appropriately when they shot Crawford to death

“The officers gave verbal commands to the subject to drop the weapon,” Evers said in a statement. “The subject … was shot after failing to comply with the officers’ commands. The quick response of officers was instrumental in containing this situation and minimizing the risk to customers.”
