dreadful happenings

We had a police shooting in town today.  This is something that is very rare in this relatively small town.  I have lived here for 9 years and have never heard of this happening before.  I even volunteer for the county Sheriff’s office and this has not ever happened.  It is a bit unnerving.

I have heard so many different versions of the story, that I don’t know what to believe.  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.  I also heard that there were two people in the vehicle when she was shot and that they were both  shot and killed.  I also heard that the female was dead and that a male in the vehicle with her was in the hospital.  According to the news reports, the driver was the only one in the vehicle.  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.  Someone got nervous and called the police.  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.  We will know more as time goes on I suppose.
