my wife drove by that store about a half hour after the shootings took place. She had me scouring the local net when she got home.

With the amount of guns that are in that area of town, I would think this guy will get caught sooner rather than later.

That suspect was my sister's next door neighbor until she moved a couple years ago. She said he was a thug. What a scumbag. Last I heard, he was still at large.

I know the TPD can't comment right now, but how did this guy get off two head shots on two officers? I know one of the eye witnesses that was standing in the doorway of the store as it happened. Said both officers were gone at the scene even though emergency personnel were attempting revival at the scene.
The scumbag hit one of them with multiple shots to the torso also.

They tear gassed the house he was hiding in. 5 minutes later you hear gunshots. Then they release a dog into the house and let it drag this punk's dead body out. The news isn't confirming who it was or if they are alive. Knowing the situation I bet it was the punk and he's done for.

KMBZ 9 stayed with this through the end. After tear gassing the place he may have shot himself which led the TPD give him about 6 rounds of 3124fps of justice. This guy was looking to commit suicide by cop. Better that he's gone from this earth.

Reading that he's a Pottawatomie Indian that changed his last name from David Jim to David Escarino, the last name of his step father.

From the tweets I got from the PC, that according to witnesses interviewed at the scene, it was a simple drug deal. Officer(s) walked up on car and this POS fires from the back seat. JFC, what a POS this guy was. The TPD is familiar with the POS. Had a history of ciminal activity.

That is the official definition yes, but if you've ever played video games and such, ganked means straight up blitz killed in a matter of seconds.

I don't go there very often except if I need to pick up something while at work. Wouldn't go there at night.

It used to be a great area to live. But that was 30+ years ago. That area kind of went under a reverse gentrification. As older homeowners died off, the homes were sold and converted to rentals. That brings in some lower income folks, which draws in other ne'r do wells, and so on and so forth.

That Dillon's is the one they've kept open as courtesy I think. There are som many elderly, disabled, low income folks without transportation, that this dillon's was always pretty vital to them.

But it also became a haven for thugs preying upon those very people who are easy marks. The spread of gangs in the 90's didn't help much.

Fortunately the area is getting better (IMO), due to the college hill beautification initiative. This is a pretty big setback though.

The 29th and Oakley dillons isn't "ghetto". I used to live right down the street and go there all the time. The location where the pos killed the officers on the other hand is a very questionable locale. Efforts to clean the area up but the residents must first take pride in the neighborhood. Unfortunately that's not likely with the majority of the people.

yeah, Brookwood isn't ghetto, it's just old and small. That was our store growing up.
