Officers were able to contain the man as he reached the east sidewalk. Once he got to the sidewalk Crawford stopped and leaned forward and began to yell with his hand behind his back. He began to count down and when he got to one, he swiftly pulled his hand from his back and the officers reacted to the threat. Officers deployed less lethal munition to safely approach Crawford in an effort to administer first aid. During the investigation a weapon was not recovered.
