According to Davis, the man “concealed his hands in his pants pockets” and refused to obey ‘multiple’ unspecified commands from the officers as he paced back and forth in the parking lot.Davis claims the officers spoke to Olango during this time, though he did not specify whether that communication comprised only commands, or — given the original call indicated a man with mental health issues — included even cursory offers to attain psychiatric assistance.Davis explained that as the officers spoke to Olango, he “rapidly drew an object from his front pants pockets, placed both hands together on it and extended it rapidly toward [one] officer, taking what appeared to be a shooting stance.”No weapon was found at the scene, and the object in question turned out to be a ‘vape smoking device with a silver “cylinder that is approximately 1” diameter and 3” long that was pointed toward the officer,” police were quoted explaining in a statement cited by the Times.
