    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,
    This question is very broad and we would welcome some clarification. Officers fire their guns for qualifications (something they are required to do yearly), for training purposes, to put down animals, etc. If the requester is looking for the number of times APD shot at a person in 2020 the answer is two. Two officers each discharged their firearm once in the incident involving Grant Paul Dalton. Let me know if you have any questions or have additional information on what specifics we can answer for the requester.
    Cheers,
