Let Me Put It Another Way. Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow!

Maybe it's just me, but ...
"Stop and get off the [police] officer."

The verbal commands are ignored.

Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple.

He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer.
I think, after I'd been shot in the gut the second or third time, I'd have gotten off the officer.

As it turns out?  A fifth shot - this one to the head - got him off of the officer.  Forever.
