You don't detain someone who was just brandishing a firearm until they have been fully cleared. If you go up to cuff that guy and he rolls over and puts a gun in your belly, your backup officers can't fire because you're in the way. This procedure is standard protocol for detaining an armed and brandishing suspect in an occupied building.
