East Bay Cops Shoot, Kill Fleeing Drug Suspect

by Phillip Smith

An Antioch, California man under surveillance for a drug warrant was shot and killed by police as he fled after the vehicle in which he was a passenger struck a police vehicle. Charles Burns, 21, becomes the 12th person to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, citing police sources, Concord police had a warrant for Burns' arrest for drug sales and were conducting surveillance on his Antioch home Friday evening when Burns came out of his home and got into a truck driven by another man.

As detectives "tried to contact" Burns, the driver of the truck "accelerated rapidly and rammed an occupied police vehicle," according to Concord Police Lt. Steve Dyer. Burns then ran from the truck. "Two officers, fearing for their safety, fired at the suspect, striking him," Dyer said.

Burns died at the scene. Police did not mention recovering any weapons, and since Burns had left the vehicle and was fleeing the scene, it is unclear why the officers claimed they feared for their safety. It is also unclear whether police were in uniform or plain clothes.

Perhaps answers will be forthcoming, if not from Antioch and Concord police investigations, possibly from a Contra Costa County district attorney's office review or a coroner's inquest.

Burns' father, a grief-stricken John Burns wasn't waiting for investigations. Police did not have to kill his son, who would have turned 22 on Mothers' Day, he told the Chronicle.

"They should be in prison," the elder Burns said through sobs and expletives, referring to the officers who opened fire. "I wish I knew what happened."

71204 So many unanswered questions ..wonder why . Trying to cover the truth ? Why isnt the dog mentioned? Look at the evidence ppl its right in ur face on the news.. Look at the damage on the truck. If your smart youll figure out they were hit. 15 yellow markers mark the shell caseings . They fired so sloppy to hit a window of an apartment? How about after they shot him put the dog on him then walked up to him and shot him again how u guys going to explain that one... The truth will come out.
The whitnesses & video clip will clarify it all .
Justice will be served.

71204 You are right there are alot of unanswered questions alot of things dont add up. Why is concord pd in antioch? Why have they not told what happened? I see no reason unless they know they didnt do something right. Have it out for the young man? Why not serve the warrant while he was walking to the vehicle? Mess up your original plan cpd? Did that make you angry? Unanswered questions just makes you think what really happened. One lie comes out they all do like a dominos effect. By the way officers at the scene didnt know who the victim was? But if they are survellancing him because they are going to serve a warrant im sure they know who there looking for..
