Don Moore related the following to the
When our tactical team started the assault on
the house, at 5:00am, I had been sleeping in a chair (been there
since the beginning) inside the command vehicle. It sounded like a
mini war as 100's of tear gas shells and stun grenades were fired
through the doors and windows of the house in an effort to get the
suspect to flee.
But he had barricaded
himself in the basement behind the freezer ready for a fight, but he
then shot himself, just before we entered. Never forget that
incident. Along with at least 50 other crazy ones !!!!!!!
