“You toss that gun out of there. I put mine away, and I’ll come talk to you. I promise you. We can help you. It’s not the way,” the officer told Harper.
As the standoff continued, Harper told his age to the officer.
“Come on, bud, you have to talk to me. Dude, you’re 20. You’re still so young. Let’s go, dude, we don’t want to do this. Just put it (the gun) down, bud. We don’t want to do it. You don’t want to do it. You’re 20,” the officer continued.
Harper put down his gun and the officer handcuffed him asking him why he did the robbery. The 20-year-old reportedly showed remorse for his actions and said he had made “terrible decisions”.
