Yup. The police were looking for a black man and shot one. Not the one they were originally looking for, but that appears to be beside the point.
The guy had a gun in a public place , had an ankle holster and refused to comply with the orders given and then started waving his arms about... what did he expect to happen.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Georgensgmünd, Bavaria (south of Nuremberg)

A Reichsbürger has shot four police officers yesterday, one which died today.
Police raided the home to seize weapons.
http://www.zeit.de/gesellschaft/zeit...izist-schuesse


A Reichsbürger is some like a Sovereign Citizen or Freeman. Core of their belief is that the German Reich (2nd or 3rd) has never ended, the now existing Federal Republic of Germany is not the rightful successor, and the German country is under occupation and control of the allied forces which won over Hitler Germany.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Sunday night, Bex VD

A 27 year old (C permit) tenant allegedly broke into a (own or other is not clear from news report) flat in his apartment house. An other tenant informed the police. Once they arrived on the scene they were attacked by the young man with a kitchen knife. The police shot the man. Ambulance was called but the man died on the scene.

Police officer charged for wrongful death.

As a CCP holder, I am happy to see this.

I have not seen the NRA's response yet- but I'm sure it will be underwhelming.

Should be an interesting case. The DA did not take the case to a grand jury so he's very sure he will get a conviction. I personally am not convinced that he will get a solid conviction.

http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/panorama...story/31289962

Residence report shots fired around 6 am. Also, it is said the shots where fired by police against a man armed with a large kitchen knife. Still unlcear what really happened. Photos shows many casings on street.
The man who was shot 6 times. The police fired in total 13 rounds!
In the court trial the man was found not guilty and held not accountable part due to an insuffizient charge/indictment (prosecutor did not show that the man was actually attacking the police) and part due his then mental state

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Looks like the next shooting will be in a US football stadium

Quote:
A bill was proposed by Republican representatives Matt Shea, David Taylor and Bob McCaslin and would prevent NFL stadium operators from stopping members of the public with licenses to carry concealed firearms from entering their venues with weapons.
