Hear two minutes of edited police audio: Burglary and shooting on Thayer street
What I’m hearing is that the burglar was shot and killed by police outside the house. Just before that, the burglar apparently shot two residents or friends or residents who went to the house after hearing of the burglary in progress. One victim was shot upstairs, the other was found outside the house. One victim is now dead.
From a neighbor: “The criminal was shot in our yard then stumbled in front of Allison’s house where he was shot repeatedly. He was apparently reaching for a clip to reload his gun when he stopped in front of our house after seeing my wife. Our little dog was barking at him. When he was shot, the clip flew in the air and is still on the sidewalk in front of our house. He then stumbled next door. About 8 gunshots. Angie hit the deck when the shots started and thought the guy was about shoot her. She’s pretty shaken up, but doing better. Two men were shot three doors down before all of this happened. One is in critical condition and one is dead. A policeman got hurt, but is okay. The criminal is dead.” — Chet L.
Another neighbor claims that shortly before all this happened a black male was standing in front the house at 204 pretending to use a leafblower while a second person was inside the house burglarizing it.
Please remember the FH story from a few weeks ago when two suspicious young black males (one with a leafblower) were being sought by police in Capitol View.
