As Arizona Daily Independent reported Mohamed Ahmed E A Al-Hashemi, a Qatari national in the United States on a student visa, is dead after he attacked an Arizona State Trooper on patrol in the area of Rural Road just south of the Loop 202 in Tempe.
According to the Department of Public Safety (DPS), on December 19, 2019, just before midnight, the trooper was on patrol accompanied by a citizen observer. While patrolling the area, the trooper saw Al-Hashemi knock a street sign into the roadway.
Trooper Hugh Grant ordered Al-Hashemi to pick up the sign, but he refused to obey commands even as the trooper ordered him to stop walking in the middle of the street.
Al-Hashemi then approached the police car and kicked the front grill.
The trooper used a stun gun to subdue Al-Hashemi but it didn’t stop him from rushing the officer and violently punching and kicking him.
After over a minute of fighting, the trooper, who was in a fight for his life had no choice but to fire his weapon, killing Al-Hashemi.
Officials released a video of the incident during a news conference.
AP with the backstory on Al-Hashemi’s prior arrest:
Authorities said they didn’t know if Al-Hashemi was impaired. The trooper had injuries to his face and head and is resting at home.
Authorities say Al-Hashemi was arrested for trespassing at the Islamic Community Center of Tempe on Wednesday. Police in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe responded to a disturbance at the mosque around 4:30 a.m. At the center’s request, officers gave Al-Hashemi a warning and told him not to return, police spokesman Greg Bacon said.
Al-Hashemi returned in the early afternoon and officers were called again. Bacon said he was then arrested on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing and booked into jail.
It’s unclear how long Al-Hashemi has been living in the U.S. He was a former student at Arizona State University, which is based in Tempe, according to school officials. They didn’t provide other details.
Brown’s injuries, as well as evidence, showed he deserved what he got. All wounds were from the front as well as his DNA was inside the police car when he was injured trying to take the officers gun away. He fled, but came back thus being taken out like a charging elephant.
