A man was attempting to cash a check under a fake name. Police were called. Lane left the store first, but as the man was leaving police arrived. The men fought, while Lane attempted to either hit the officer or escape with the suspect. During the fight, the officer shot Lane, saying he was afraid she’d run him over. This was first ruled against policy then ruled within policy.
