 PASCO, WA - The ACLU of Washington today released this statement regarding the fatal officer involved shooting in Pasco Tuesday evening.

"This is a very disturbing incident, and our hearts go out to the family of Antonio Zambrano-Montes.  Fleeing from police and not following an officer's command should not be sufficient for a person to get shot.  Lethal force should be used only as an absolute last resort.  Police need to understand how to de-escalate confrontations and use force only as necessary."

-          Kathleen Taylor, Executive Director, ACLU of Washington
