If a police officer fires his weapon, the intention is to totally incapacitate his target.A wounded gunman still in possession of his weapon is the worst possible outcome.The fact the firearm the gunman was armed with was obsolete is completely irrelevant. At the time, nobody knew what the gun was, only that it appeared to be a firearm, and that it was being used to threaten life.An armed officer would never intentionally shoot someone in the legs.If the situation can be controlled without the use of lethal force, the firearm would not be drawn.Other means would be used.It may have been, that seeing what his backdrop was, he kept his aim low After all,he was aiming at a moving figure.Always more difficult to get a good aim on.And being on a main road with buses and other transport and pedestrians, a shot aimed high could have missed and hit someone up the road.The last thing the officer would have wanted would be a head high shot travelling for half a mile or hitting someone else
