An Arizona woman says she is wracked with guilt after she called 911 for help and the responding officers fatally shot her boyfriend.
On December 27, Sitharath Sam called 911 when her boyfriend of 10 years, Sean Mould, drunkenly refused to leave her home.
When Tempe police arrived on the scene, they shot the 34-year-old dead, claiming that he was holding a knife.
“I can barely get out of bed because of all the guilt I feel over calling the stupid freaking police,” Sam told ABC 15. “Save him, don’t freaking kill him. To me, this is police brutality.”
“This turned into a nightmare,” she added. “When you call you expect assistance, nothing like this where your boyfriend is dead.”
Police say they found an intoxicated Mould in a garage holding a knife.
Police claim he ignored orders to drop the knife and began walking toward the officers, who shot him.
Mould was rushed to a hospital but died from his injuries.
Sam says Mould was never physically violent or threatening.
“Now I feel like I can never call a cop to come and help me because what, what’s going to happen?” Sam said. “One of my loved ones is going to get killed?”
