The Guardian reports:
Johnson did not fire at police, according to law enforcement, but he did raise his gun. Nine civilians – four women and five men – were shot or grazed by the two officers who shot Johnson dead.Initial reports suggested the shooter shot the bystanders, additionally it was suggested the cops had "returned fire," which has also been proven wrong.
One of the shooting victims says police fired "randomly" into the street.
Readers may remember this story where a 65-year-old woman used a gun to defend herself against five robbers, the police "cautioned store owners about defending themselves with guns."
Lt. Jeff Nightengale said, "Just like a police officer, when you fire that weapon and those rounds go down range, you have to be accountable for where those rounds go."
Will these police be "held accountable" for where their rounds went? Don't hold your breath.
Here's surveillance footage released of the shooting:
