All nine people that were shot (8 bystanders + the original man with the guy) were ALL felled by rounds from NYPD police weapons.
One witness who preferred to remain anonymous told The Guardian, “…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.
Will these police be “held accountable” for where their rounds went? Don’t hold your breath.
