That's what jurors must decide in the U-S District Court civil trial of Officer William Boucher (boo-SHAY). Boucher shot Wilbert Wesley Lewis after a car chase on the outskirts of downtown Roanoke in late December 1999. Both Lewis and Boucher have said they were facing each other when the shot was fired. But today, Lewis testified his back was to the officer and his hands on top of the car when he was shot in the back. An emergency room surgeon testified it's his "impression" the bullet exited Lewis' stomach. Boucher says Lewis failed to comply with commands "get on the ground" and "show his hands" and that he fired only when Lewis lunged at him. The trial is expected to last two days.
