A man is dead after he was shot and killed in a Lowe’s parking lot by a security guard in the East Columbia Neighborhood, in Portland, Or.
This is a very bad day for all the actors involved. The man shot dead will never have an opportunity to spend to with his family. The security guard who shot the man, may be held accountable for this shooting. The security guard’s freedom could be in jeopardy. And the company that employs the guard, may go out of business. It is not know whether or not the guard was properly insured to do armed security. — Frank Costa, Nexgen Security Guard Protection Services.
Hiring an armed guard is very serious business. Well established rules and regulations are strictly followed regarding the use of force. Rigorous training for armed security must adhere to the procedures established, when and how the use of a firearm is warranted. Guards are expertly trained in de-escalation techniques, as well as methods and ways to keep composed under high stress situations.
