Summaryhttp://Officers attempted to stop a vehicle for bad license plate light, and a chase ensued. Suspect vehicle with two occupants crashed, and suspect and another ran. Officer chasing on foot saw a "moving shadow" and shot. Four or five shots were heard, no independent witnesses to source. Special note: officer statement taken eight days after shooting; accomplice (who escaped on the night) claimed suspect was "executed"; officer had a prior shooting on his record; officer testimony and oddly placed weapon only evidence of suspect having a handgun.
