Don Geer has always maintained his son’s hands were held up as he stood inside the screen door of his Springfield-area townhouse during the standoff and that he was unarmed. Torres told investigators he fired when he saw Geer’s hands go toward his waist and thought he might be reaching for a weapon.

Four other officers saw it much differently.  More
