An increase in training may have kept the situation from turning tragic.
About a quarter of people shot and killed by police nationwide are suffering from a mental illness, according to a database maintained by The Washington Post.
Oftentimes, the blame is placed on a lack of training.
State Police Corporal Adam Reed said an emphasis has been placed on training troopers to better recognize mental health issues.
