Gotta love it when police shoot somebody just because they answered the door. Deputies shoot, kill man after knocking on wrong door | Local News - WESH Home Let me clarify a couple of things before anyone comes in here and starts defending the police. The police were at the wrong door, they admit that. It was 1:30 in the morning. The police did not announce themselves, they also admit that. They claim the guy was pointing a gun at them when he opened the door. The police claim that Andrew Lee Scott died because of number 4, which is ridiculous, Even if he did actually point a gun at them when he opened the door, he died because the police were reckless, They were at the knocking on the wrong door at 1:30AM without announcing themselves Scott died because the local cops thought that rules that protect the public were too much trouble.
