Suicide By Cop

A man who died after being shot by Jacksonville Police last November wanted to die.

That's the conclusion into the November 20th shooting on Croatan Court. It’s being called "suicide by cop".

Police responded to a call that a man had a gun. Police say that man was Neil Manson and he threatened the officers when they moved in to take him into custody. They opened fire, and Manson was fatally shot.

The investigation determined that Manson deliberately threatened the officers with the main goal of provoking a lethal response and ending his life.
