If he has any brains, he may have been running, by that point, and the officer can't just shoot him if he's no longer a threat, no matter how many of us would like to see him sent straight to Hell.
I'm very happy that the officers are okay, and, on a minor note, that we didn't have to pay for their funerals.
Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of jackals by jackasses.
