His dad says his son should not have been firing the weapon here, but he says police fired without warning.

“He was just trying to get a feel of the weapon in case those intruders came back,” David Romano said.

WJZ contacted the police to find out if officers identified themselves and if Nick Romano was ordered to put down his weapon.

“I don’t want to speculate about the officer’s words or motivations or how quickly he fired. I think it’s important to understand that the officers responded to a shots fired call,” Kowalczyk said.

Meanwhile, David Romano just wants answers and a fair investigation. He says if police would’ve identified themselves and ordered his son to put down the weapon he would have done so.

“Absolutely, in a heartbeat. Anybody with common sense would’ve done that,” David Romano said.

Romano’s father was one of the Navy seamen who helped rescue victims from the water taxi when it capsized nine years ago near Fort McHenry.
