While police claim the man was armed and shot at them, several witnesses reported that they did not see the man shoot at cops.
ABC 7 reports:
“We lost a life out here,” said resident Pladee Clayton. “That’s what everybody’s upset and everything, over an African-American couldn’t pay his fare.”
Police announced a break in the investigation on Sunday. After searching rooftops for a gun pointed at officers by the suspect, the answer may have come from a video posted on the website YouTube. The video shows police moments after the shooting and what appears to be a silver gun just feet from the suspect.
