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]
