Followup VA: Armed Off Duty Officer who Shot Teen Robber was Justified

After reviewing both cases, the Chesterfield Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office has ruled the Nov. 27 fatal shooting of Jacob L. Baumgart, 15, and the Oct. 11 wounding of Allen E. Piner, 25, to be justifiable shootings, said Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Ken Nickels.

Richmond officer Robert Misegades, while off duty, fatally shot Baumgart after the teen produced a pistol and tried to rob a man who was selling an Xbox video game system, authorities said. Misegades was also shot during an exchange of gunfire with the teen. He was treated at a hospital and released.
