Man this is a confusing report. The cops fired the shots and it was a pellet gun?The school was shut down and when the suspect was found, police discovered that it was a pellet gun.
The cops are shooting at a fleeing suspect trying to kill a person who MAY have had an illegal substance (possibly a misdemeanor?). Since when does a misdemeanor warrant the death penalty?
(Note it doesn't say the suspect tried to run down an officer).
Grainger is the officer. Why was her roommate there?An officer fired two shots at O’Leary, one of them hitting a police car, though Grainger did not see them because her roommate had yelled at her to get her head down.
AlsoEarlier in the article it said the suspect was found. But he wasn't found.Owens said O’Leary left the car and got away by foot.
