LITTLE ROCK, AR — A young man made the wrong pick of his life when he attempted to force his way into a Little Rock apartment occupied by one of Little Rock’s finest.
The near six-year veteran of the police force wasn’t thrilled about having his safety threatened, and he put that thug down in a hot minute.
As Little Rock police said in a statement according to the Arkansas Times:
On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, at 1024 hours officers responded to a burglary in progress of an occupied apartment at 420 Markham Mesa Place. While officers were enroute to the call, off duty officer Brian Osmundson advised over his police radio that a male was beating on the door to his apartment and trying to gain entry. He then advised that the suspect had broke out a window and was attempting to get inside the apartment and shots had been fired.
When on duty officers arrived on the scene they located Officer Osmundson rendering aid to a black male lying outside of the apartment. The subject was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and kept repeating to officers that his name was “God.”
Officer Osmundson told the responding officers that the subject had attempted to break into his residence and he fired several shots at him. The subject was transported to Baptist Hospital where he was listed in serious but stable condition.
Major Crimes detectives and CSSU responded to the scene. Detectives interviewed witnesses who were inside and outside of the apartment at the time of the incident. The witnesses corroborated the initial information given to officers regarding what occurred.
The subject who was shot has been identified as Cartier Warner, B/M, 06/14/1994, of Little Rock. He is currently in the hospital and under police guard. The charges against Warner are pending the outcome of the investigation and his release from the hospital.
Officer Osmundson was hired a Little Rock Police officer on June 25, 2012. Officer Osmundson has been placed on administrative leave per department policy. The investigation is ongoing.
It’s a special kind of bad luck to pick the home of a law enforcement officer to invade — or a special kind of stupid.
Since the man proclaimed on multiple occasions that his name was “God,” it’s probably safe to say he was a little intoxicated and picked the wrong place to make cash.
Kind of hard to pity him, though.
