  1. There is something in this story that gives cause for concern.

    It is reported that: “Police say a uniformed Sergeant returned fire and struck the suspect once in his right leg”.

    So far, so good.

    The report continues, say that “The suspect then ran onto Quentin Road. . .”

    If the suspect had been shot “once in his right leg” how was he able to run?

    This casts serious doubt on the police statement that “witnesses said the man shot himself in the head”.

  2. There were many shell casings lying in front of the house which means the police shot off many rounds. Witnesses say they only heard one or two shots. if there were only one or two shots and a third coming from the suspect then how is it that there were many shell casings?

    I live across the street and the police blocked of 6 blocks two from each side. police didn’t want anyone even on the corner so soemthing is really wrong over here. nobody is blaming the police and the neighborhood is happy the police took care of business and did not watse tax payers money but why not be upfront about the facts?

    The suspect had one bullet hole int he head and one int he leg and that is what i saw with my own every eyes looking out my window.
