Incident Reports

2022 Death of Brandon Combs

On February 13, 2022, Larson found Combs at a car dealership, attempting to steal a vehicle. Larson ordered Combs from the vehicle. Combs eventually complied, but then ran to and entered Larson's SUV. Larson fired, killing Combs.[1]

The incident was captured by Larson's body-worn camera.[2]

Response Timeline

In May 2022, Larson was fired. The Chief claimed Larson "made false statements about what happened in the hours before the shooting, and he refused to cooperate with my department's administrative review".[3]

The District Attorney declined to file charges, as there was a rifle in the vehicle, and the vehicle was a threat in itself.[1]

In August 2022, Comb's family filed a lawsuit, accusing Larson of excessive force and the city of wrongful death.[1]
