Yet again, we see misplaced retaliation from a gunman as a result of the recent police brutality incidents this week. This time, things got shaken up last night in Bristol, Tennessee when the gunman opened fire onto an open highway, targeting police officers. One person, a newspaper carrier, is dead from the haphazard and sloppy attack.
Following is a snippet from The Blaze:
“The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says in a news release that initial conversations with the suspect, identified as Lakeem Keon Scott revealed he was troubled by incidents across the U.S. The TBI says the suspect is black; the shooting victims are all white.
Investigators say Scott killed one person, 44-year-old Jennifer Rooney and wounded three others. The TBI identified those who were injured as Deborah Watts, David Whitman Davis and Officer Matthew Cousins.
Scott had two guns early Thursday morning when he shot at a motel in Bristol, Tennessee, and then shot indiscriminately at several passing cars. When he was confronted by police, he fired at the three officers who responded.
The suspect was shot by the officers and is being treated at a hospital. He has not yet been charged.”
