Firefighters deployed a large ladder, while police was standing behind the door of the apartment to try to bring the man back to his senses. They could not enter the home because the man had reiterated his threat to jump if someone came home. It is then that a police officer in charge of the negotiation, decides that the best way to stop this suicide attempt is to kill him, because if he is dead, He could not trivially commit suicide.
It is recalled that the police officer is currently in custody and will be prosecuted for stupidity and intentional homicide with premeditation.
