The Burke County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday released a photo of the CO2 air gun that a man pointed at a sheriff’s deputy on Monday night before the deputy fatally shot him, and a photo of a real revolver. An officer wears an orange glove while holding the air gun. “Distinguishing between the CO2 weapon and a real revolver is difficult even in a calm non-threatening environment,” the sheriff’s office said.
