U-Haul Thief Tries Grabbing Cop's Gun, Gets Executed — Fairfax County, Virginia

[full video: action begins 5:11 and 8:28 for split-screen and single-cam, respectively]

[another angle, with helpful commentary]

On May 11, 2023, Brandon Lemagne, 38, was approached by a Fairfax County police officer at a Citgo gas station on Richmond Highway (Route 1) when the plates on his U-Haul truck were identified as stolen. The gas station is located at 6241 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22303. He reached for the officer's firearm, attempting to grab it out of the officer's holster. They struggled onto the driver's seat of the officer's police cruiser, as the officer radioed "Signal One," indicating "officer in trouble." As backup approached the scene, the cruiser began to move, crashing into the nearby McDonald's building. The officers continued to struggle as backup arrived, at which point the second officer shot 18 rounds into the driver's side window, toward both Lemagne and the first officer. The third officer then approaches the vehicle, pulls Lemagne out of the car, and fires three rounds point-blank into Lemagne's head.

It is unclear whether Lemagne died when shot by the third officer, or whether he died after taking fire from the second officer who fired into the vehicle. Nevertheless, it is clear from the video that Lemagne did not have the officer's firearm in his hand when he was pulled out of the vehicle. It is also unclear whether the first officer was shot at any point, although if he were, it could not have been with his own firearm, since it was still in his holster when the other officers pulled him out to render aid.

So much stupid cop bullshit in such a quick span. Unable to identify where he is. Shooting into a vehicle without being able to see into it, with a restaurant directly behind. The gratuitous triple-tap. God damn.

You know the real shitty thing? Fairfax is among the richest counties in America. This should be one of the finest police forces in the nation, yet even the wealthy can't control their savages.

Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away…forever.
