Isn't there a less-lethal way to approach a sleeping homeless man?

A video posted to Ron Robinson’s Facebook page in June shows a gang of Albuquerque Police armed with assault rifles opening fire on a 57-year-old homeless man named Roger Schafer at a bus stop on Aug 22, 2019, after several 9-1-1 callers reported the man was brandishing a black gun.

A local report posted to KRQE.com the following day reveals that “multiple officers reported seeing a handgun in the waistline of Schafer’s pants and warned him to keep his hands away from his waistband. Refusing to comply, Schafer moved from the ground to the bus bench and began to reach for the front of his pants.”

The question is: why were less-lethal weapons not used in an attempt to apprehend the man.
