Dibblee testified that when McEwan shifted and exposed Crosson’s torso, he shot at the man 14 times and other officers began firing as well. The jury has been hearing testimony this week about the March 2019 hostage situation in Surrey that ended with both Crosson and McEwan being killed by police bullets. Dibblee testified that after the shooting stopped, McEwan was moved into the kitchen and initially treated by officers who are trained medics for two gunshot wounds to her torso and arm.
