We had a police shooting in town today. Â This is something that is very rare in this relatively small town. Â I have lived here for 9 years and have never heard of this happening before. Â I even volunteer for the county Sheriff’s office and this has not ever happened. Â It is a bit unnerving.
I have heard so many different versions of the story, that I don’t know what to believe. Â I heard that it was the result of an altercation that began in the neighborhood that I live in and moved to the downtown area. Â I also heard that there were two people in the vehicle when she was shot and that they were both Â shot and killed. Â I also heard that the female was dead and that a male in the vehicle with her was in the hospital. Â According to the news reports, the driver was the only one in the vehicle. Â It is strange how stories get turned around and twisted into something that is not even anywhere near the truth!!
The news reports say that it was a female, 54 years old, that was parked across from a school, watching the children. Â Someone got nervous and called the police. Â When she was asked to leave, there was an altercation of some kind with the police officer, she rolled up her window, drove away and was shot by the officer. Â We will know more as time goes on I suppose.
