    Ummm... A protester did get shot and the crowd legged it and shouted at police trying to help.
    That's Seattle, there is a video of the aggressor assaulting the shooter then the shooter shooting in self defence

    "opened fire"

    "shot an attacker in self-defence" would be more apt
    Actually, think it was right right the first time. The news is reporting that a group of soldiers attempted to tackle him using "non-lethal force", but that this didn't work. Then, RoEs would have had them warn the guy they would shoot, eventually meaning they had to 'open fire'.

    In context, I'd say that language was appropriate.

    Just makes you wonder when you see soldiers with assault rifles deployed on the streets to protect the citizens.

    A man shouting "Allahu Akbar" tried to attack the soldier with a knife and was seriously injured when the soldier responded.

    I don't think any Muslims are going to condemn this shooting. They are probably happy that the terrorist was unsuccessful and lives have been saved.

    I expect it was someone trying to make it look like a Moslem atrocity, and willing to risk death or arrest to do so, eh?

    It is shocking that an innocent tourist, who was only after a spot of cultural enrichment, should be mercilessly attacked in this way. He couldn't possibly be a Moslem, as no Moslem would ever kill anyone, so perhaps he was a Coptic Christian.

    Either way the only solution is obviously to open the gates and allow free movement between the Europe the Middle East, Africa and Asia so that people can benefit from more cultural enrichment.
