Well, from America comes the answer:
Sheriff: Deputies shoot man threatening to throw brick
Dec. 11, 2015
ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot by a deputy in South Carolina after he threatened to throw a brick.
Anderson County Sheriff spokeswoman Lt. Sheila Cole told news outlets that deputies were called to a home in Anderson because a son was attacking his father.
Cole says when deputies arrived around 9 p.m. Thursday, the son came out from behind cars holding a brick.
Sheriff John Skipper says the man was shot in the shoulder when he pulled his arm back with the brick.
Well, that's the standard then.
He didn't even get to throw it before being shot. The threat of danger was sufficient.
