The linked article doesn't give a lot of detail about the shooting. Still, if you're going to use your firearm for self-defense or defense of others, you do not want to be holding that firearm in your hands when the police arrive.
But an officer can come on the scene out of your line of sight in the thick of the action.

Yet the point is valid, put the gun out of sight as soon as possible.

News account indicates that the civilian picked up the shooter’s AR after shooting the bad guy with a handgun. The shooter had retrieved the rifle from his car after fatally shooting a police officer with a shotgun.

Seeing an unknown person holding an AR, the responding LEO did the logical thing, sadly.
If that is truly what happened, that was mistake. Push it well out of reach, but don't pick it up since the threat was down.

Brave man. Sad situation.
