Blaine, MN, 21 March, 2017 - Four police officers, three EMTs and two suspects were hospitalized after being exposed to an apparent chemical following a police chase Tuesday morning. The chase began after 8:15 a.m., according to the Blaine Police Department. Officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle with two men inside. Authorities described the vehicle as “suspicious.” A pursuit ensued, according to authorities, and a PIT maneuver was executed in Lino Lakes in the vicinity of County Road 23 and Town Center Parkway. Police say as the officers were taking two male occupants into custody, they began having respiratory issues from something inside the vehicle. Police say the North Metro Chemical Assessment Team responded and determined that the source of the chemical appears to be a combination of a leaking propane tank and a number of used spray paint cans that were in the vehicle. The combination of chemicals often can create symptoms similar to what the officers were reporting: difficulty breathing, dizziness and weakness. In addition to the four police officers, three EMTs and two suspects were taken to the hospital and later released. Police say a loaded firearm was also located in the vehicle. The passenger of the suspect vehicle was interviewed and released.
Marquette, MI, 18 March, 2017 - A high-speed chase early Saturday morning resulted in an alleged drunken driver crashing into a tree. Dash-cam video of the incident was released today by the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office. According to a press release from the department, just after 1 a.m. Saturday, a deputy observed a driver on County Road 550, or Grove Street, cross the center line and accelerate in the wrong lane. The deputy reportedly attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver — identified as a 22-year-old man from Negaunee — continued to accelerate at speeds of 70 mph or greater in the wrong lane. The driver failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of County Road 500 and County Road 492, and struck an embankment. The vehicle became airborne and struck two trees before coming to a halt. The driver was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. He was uninjured, and arrested and lodged at the Marquette County Jail for operating while intoxicated and fleeing/eluding police. His name will not be released pending arraignment.
Two officers who exchanged gunfire with a man earlier this month outside a Walnut Hills apartment complex have been cleared of any charges, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters announced Tuesday.. Police said Damion McRae, 37, shot Cincinnati police Officer Kenneth Grubbs outside a Walnut Hills apartment complex on March 12. Grubbs and McRae were injured, but are expected to make full recoveries. Officials released body camera footage from the two officers who responded to the shooting. Cincinnati police were called to an apartment building on Gilbert Avenue on reports of a domestic violence incident. Grubbs and Officer William Keuper, who were riding together as partners, found McCrae in the apartment’s courtyard. As the officers attempted to stop McCrae, prosecutors said, McCrae shot Grubbs with a 9 mm rifle concealed at his side. Grubbs was shot in the lower abdomen and fell to the ground. Prosecutors said Grubbs returned fire as he fell. Officials said Keuper, who was walking behind Grubbs when he was shot, also returned fire at McCrae. Investigators said McCrae was struck and fell to the ground. Deters said Grubbs fired 17 times, and Keuper fired eight rounds. Investigators said McCrae continued to reach into his pockets after the incident, despite police telling him not to. Deters said McRae also was carrying a .22-caliber revolver. McRae has been indicted on one count of attempted murder, two counts of felonious assault, two counts of weapons under disability, one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of assault. If he is convicted of all charges, McRae faces the possibility of over 20 years in prison. Deters said Tuesday that depending on the investigation, a second attempted murder charge might be sought for McRae’s actions agast Keuper. “We are grateful for the safety of our two officers in this violent confrontation," Cincinnati police Chief Eliot Isaac said. "Their brave action demonstrated courage under fire, amazing restraint, and is a true testament to their training. We will work closely with the Hamilton County prosecutor’s office to ensure Mr. McRae is held accountable for this heinous act to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Protestors didn't even get started before blocking Hwy 95, before the Florida State Troopers show up and Stop them cold. These police and citizens around the country are getting fed up with these leftist protesters attempting to terrorize communities around the nation. Here's just another example of a police department that is implementing a zero tolerance policy in regards to blocking freeways.
"The body worn camera footage begins just after Spencer Ervin (seen in the red shirt) fired a gun at another person. Officers quickly move to apprehend Ervin who dropped the gun and was standing behind the woman you see being shoved in the cell phone video. Officers give directives to the woman to move out of the way. The woman appears to be preventing officers from taking Ervin into custody. Ervin appears to ignore officers’ commands to see his hands. Officers direct Ervin to get down on the ground which he complies with. The woman continues to ignore officers’ commands and is subsequently pushed out of the way so officers’ could take Ervin into custody. Ultimately, the woman was obstructing officers from taking Ervin, who had just fired a gun at another person, into custody. Further, the body worn camera footage shows subjects continuing to approach officers after Ervin is detained. Officers are observed establishing a perimeter around Ervin and the evidence. Officers gave lawful directives to the subjects to disperse. When the subjects refused to do so, officers deployed OC spray." - Columbia Missouri Police Department
On Monday, dramatic dashcam video was released of a police chase in Berrien Township that ended with a Michigan state trooper being attacked last month. The full clip runs just under 50 minutes and shows the remarkable account of what happened the morning of February 20. Two men, 21-year-old Michael Barber and his 19-year-old brother, Travis Wise were arrested for attacking Trooper Garry Guild. Both men face multiple charges, including assault and resisting an officer. The dashcam video starts at 8:40 a.m. In the video, you’ll see Michael Barber speed past. He’s riding a stolen motorcycle on U.S. 31 near Matthew Road. Michigan State Trooper Garry Guild attempts to stop him. Barber slows down and pulls off to the right in what appears to be a surrender; however, he then he speeds up and re-enters the freeway. Guild's sirens and lights flip on and the chase continues. Cut to 8:43 a.m. and Barber still has not stopped. He heads up the exit ramp then breaks left across a median and crashes. You can hear Trooper Garry Guild yell, “he crashed, he crashed." Barber gets up but ignores Guild's commands to get on the ground and a struggle ensues. The trooper tries to gain control of the driver, but soon another vehicle pulls up. Barber's brother, Travis Wise runs toward the scene and puts the officer in a chokehold. Meantime, Barber tries to grab Guild's weapon. Around 8:44 a.m., two Good Samaritans pull over and run to Guild's rescue. Both Barber and Wise were arrested at the scene. They face numerous charges, with Assault Strangulation carrying the most weight at 10 years if found guilty. The remainder of the dashcam video shows other MSP officers arrive along with an ambulance. Officers speak with both men who witnessed the attack and helped Guild, in what otherwise could have turned deadly.
Wyclef Jean is lashing out at the Los Angeles Police Department after he was pulled over and placed in handcuffs early Tuesday morning on his way home from the studio. The Grammy-winning singer, 47, detailed the incident hours later on Twitter, while also posting two videos taken at the scene taken by singer T Baby, who was with him at the time. 'LAPD another case of mistaken identity. Black man with red bandana robbed a gas station as I was in the studio working but im in handcuffs?' wrote Wyclef in one tweet. He is now threatening to sue the department over how he was treated by the two deputies. A police spokesperson told DailyMail.com that the deputies stopped the former member of the Fugees because he was driving a similar car and wearing the same bandanna as an armed robbery suspect. Sergeant Duncan of the LA County Sheriff Department's West Hollywood station confirmed that Wyclef was detained by deputies around 1am on Tuesday. There had been an armed robbery nearby and the suspect was driving a car similar in make and color to Wyclef's according Sergeant Duncan, and also wearing a red bandanna. The deputies released Wyclef after briefly questioning him and he has not yet filed a complaint with the department said Sergeant Duncan. Wyclef gave his version of events on Twitter, which are not vastly different from the account given by authorities. 'I was asked by the police to Put my hands up. Then I was told do not move. I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself,'; wrote Wyclef. 'Nor was I told why I was being cuffed. In the process I said my name and told them they have wrong person.' He then went on to state: 'They proceeded to ignore me and I was treated like a criminal until other police showed up and pointed out they had wrong person.' And in his final tweet he wrote: 'As some one who has law enforcers in my family, I was appalled by this behavior of the LAPD.'
At least six people were injured when a garbage truck driver traveled the wrong way on an interstate highway and struck several other vehicles during a police chase in Kentucky. Dalton Lampley, 23, of Calvert City, was arrested after the vehicle had sped east down the westbound lanes of Interstate 24, near Paducah in McCraken County. Police say he was on methamphetamine at the time. State Police Trooper Jody Cash said that some of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening. Several cop cars were involved in the chase which took place on Friday afternoon. The pursuit continued into Calvert City and ended near the intersection of Highway 1523 and Highway 62. The truck was finally brought to a halt after it hit tire-deflating strips set by an officer. In a post on the McCraken County Sheriff's Department's Facebook page Sheriff John Hayden said: 'Placing spike strips in front of a fleeing vehicle is extremely dangerous, and even more so in front of an suspected 50,000 lb truck running at you at 70-plus mph. 'McCracken Sheriff's Capt. JT Coleman risked his life today to successfully spike strip that out of control 50,000lb rocket. 'Capt. Coleman got out of his patrol car in the path of the truck that was recklessly weaving from shoulder to shoulder and threw a set of spike strips out into the roadway, successfully getting four tires on the right side of this truck.' The driver attempted to carry on but was eventually pulled into a ditch by the flat tires before hitting a guard rail and coming to a stop. Lampley was arrested on multiple counts including driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest. He was taken to Marshall County Hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being remanded in Marshall County Jail. Paducah Police Chief Brandon Barnhill said seven passenger vehicles and a tractor-trailer were hit by the truck. Five people were taken to local hospitals while one was airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Watch what happens when French police attempt to investigate a rape in a Muslim no-go zone. it is hard to fathom why a country would, firstly, allow hundreds of thousands of Africans/Muslims into their country who do not wish to integrate, and secondly, why the French police seem to show to force at all against this type of behavior. The migrants seem to have it all figured out. The video is a few years old, but reports state the situation has only gotten worse.
Body worn camera footage from a Parker police officer in Colorado shows the incredible events in which a cop responded to, and then ended, an armed suspect’s shooting rampage with a headshot from his patrol carbine on Sept 2, 2016.
The suspect Randy Rodick, 40, was armed with an AK-47 style 7.62x39mm rifle, loaded with a 75-round drum magazine, as well as a pistol. Rodick was said to have been shooting wildly and had already shot one officer, Detective Dan Brite, leaving him in critical condition.
In the video, the cop can be seen getting in a fellow officer’s squad car and rushing toward the suspect’s location. As he gets out of the vehicle, he is given the critical information that the suspect is in the driver’s seat of a crashed RV.
The officer runs up, taking cover behind the open door of an SUV, just 30 yards from the suspect. He raises his rifle, takes careful aim, and with a single shot, ends the dramatic and dangerous situation. Some of the other officer’s didn’t even know what happened at that point, and thought the gunmen had shot himself.
It’s unfortunate that this officer had to take a man’s life, but due to the man’s actions, there was no other alternative. That single headshot most likely saved the lives of other officers and innocent bystanders.

A Louisiana man livestreamed his own fatal shooting by a police officer on Facebook during a traffic stop on Thursday as his fiancee watched helplessly. Rodney James Hess, 36, was acting erratically and had attempted to hit cops with his car 'at least twice' before he was killed at around 2:15pm, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told NBC News. In the video streamed on Facebook Live from a roadside in Alamo, Tennessee, Hess can be heard saying he wants to speak to 'the higher commands' before leaving his car. He then appears to make some kind of movement and is shot several times through his windshield. Hess, who is from New Orleans and lives in Texas but had been visiting his mother in Memphis, can be heard screaming after being hit, then appears to crash his vehicle. His phone drops to the floor and begins to ring, while the sound of breaking glass - possibly officers trying to open the car door - can be heard. He died after being airlifted to hospital. Hess's fiancee, Johnisha Provost, said that his request to speak to 'the higher command' was a sign that he was asking for help. 'He was not on a suicide mission,' she told the Commercial Appeal Friday from their home in Texas. 'He was not trying to harm anybody. He was asking them for help and they shot him down.' She explained: 'He couldn't get his mind together. That's why he asked for a higher command. 'I always told him, "Babe, if you are ever in a situation where you need help, ask the person in charge for the higher command to help you," and that's what he kept saying.'Provost watched his death as it occurred, she said. 'I found out as it was happening,' Provost said. 'I was at work and my aunt called me and was like, "Rodney is in trouble." He was on Facebook and I logged on and I watched it.' Hess' cousin, Donald Hess III, said that the slain man was 'a father, a son and hard worker.' 'Rodney suffered from mental illness but was a functioning member of society. He often traveled for work - mostly construction work - and he did everything for his children,' he said. Some livesteam commenters suggested that Hess might have been on drugs. Noey Torres, one of Hess's friends, responded: 'He was off his medication he was not on drugs. 'Rodney wasnt a user. He was a hard working family man who was in need of some medical help all u people talking like yall know something should be ashamed of yallselves.' Hess also streamed another video, prior to the traffic stop by Crockett County sheriff's deputies in which he acted oddly. In the first, 17-minute long video he parks by the side of the road - with no police in sight - before walking around his vehicle, filming it. He then stands by the side of the road, filming passing cars. A passerby stops to ask if he needs help, but he tells them, 'Nah, I'm good, go ahead.' They drive off. At one point he moves his car so that is parked horizontally across one lane of traffic, then mumbles something about the 'CIA.' He moves the car a number of other times before blocking the road again. Police are seen through a rear window pulling up just before the video ends. A tearful Provost told the Commercial Appeal that Hess was 'a great person. A great dad. A great provider.' 'He just suffered from mental illness and people need to be aware of how to deal with mental illness,' Provost said. 'They could have just shot his tires out or they could have handled it differently. They didn't have to kill him.' It is not clear exactly what happened at the moment the police fired on Hess. The officers' identities are not being released as the investigation is still active. 'Though we are aware such a video exists, we cannot confirm its authenticity,' Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Public Information Officer Josh DeVine said. 'As with anything that might potentially be evidence, we will examine it to determine if it has probative benefit.' Once the investigation is concluded, details will be handed to 28th district attorney general Garry Brown, who will decide on whether to send the case to a grand jury.
Washington Park police officers arrested a man after he posted two Facebook Live videos of a high-speed chase with police Thursday night that went from East St. Louis into St. Louis and then back to East St. Louis.
Washington Park detective Antonio White said the pursuit began at Louisiana Boulevard and North 36th Street when a maroon Dodge Charger refused to pull over for officers.
In that Dodge Charger, Cameron Taylor began two separate Facebook Live videos of the chase. In them, he can be heard giving messages to his mom and his “fans” while criticizing law enforcement.
“Later on we discovered (Taylor) had many warrants,” White said.
The detective said Taylor had a warrant out of Missouri alleging armed robbery, as well as traffic warrants out of St. Clair County that alleged eluding police, among other things.
Strongsville, OH, 7 March, 2017 - Speeds reached 100 miles per hour during a police chase that ended with a Strongsville police officer shooting and killing a suspect on I-71 in Medina County Tuesday morning. Relatives identified the suspect as Roy Evans, Jr., 37, and said he was driving a van with his girlfriend and three children inside. According to a Strongsville Police Department call log, an officer tried to stop the van on I-71 Northbound near the turnpike at 2:26 a.m. when the driver fled, exiting at Pearl Road before immediately re-entering the highway in the southbound direction. Officers reported the van's engine was smoking and that Evans rammed a police cruiser at mile marker 228. The Ohio State Highway Patrol deployed spike strips at 2:36 a.m. According to the log, the van slowed and an officer reported that Evans was reaching around in the van, lighting a cigarette. A minute later, at 2:40 a.m., shots were fired near mile marker 220, about 16 miles from where the chase began. Investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation said a Strongsville officer shot Evans at least once, killing him. His girlfriend and three children were unharmed, and no officers were injured. BCI investigators were looking into what prompted the officer to shoot and whether or not the suspect was armed, according to a spokesperson. BCI said two Strongsville Police cruisers were damaged in the chase, and investigators planned to process the van Wednesday. Evans has a lengthy criminal record that includes running from police in the past. He was released from prison in September, following a nearly two year term following a 2014 arrest for attempted murder and felonious assault in Lorain County. Court records show Evans struck a plea deal, pleading guilty to two counts of felonious assault, with the attempted murder charge being dismissed. In 2004, Evans was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, failure to comply and criminal damaging, following an incident in which he bailed out of a moving van and ran from police. In 2003, Evans pleaded guilty for attempted failure to comply, DUI, vehicular assault and reckless operation and was sentenced to two years in prison. Other previous charges include breaking and entering, grand theft, receiving stolen property, attempted felonious assault, obstructing official business, and driving with a suspended license.
Bellingham Police have released the name of the suspect who died at the scene of a police shooting. In a BPD press release, the suspect has been identified as Manuel Gonzalez, 28. On Sunday, March 12, Gonzalez stabbed a man, age 20, in the neck during an altercation in the 100 block of E. Holly Street. Gonzalez then fled the scene on foot, while witnesses gave chase. Gonzalez ran to the 1400 block of Railroad Avenue where a second confrontation between witnesses and Gonzalez was ongoing. Police said that officer Jeremiah Leland came to the scene and ordered Gonzalez to drop his knife. Police said Gonzalez failed to drop the knife and advanced toward Leland, prompting Leland to shoot him. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene. An initial autopsy of Gonzalez determined he bled to death from a gunshot wound to the neck. Police said Gonzalez had a history of minor criminal offenses. The 20-year-old man who was stabbed remains in serious condition at a local hospital. Leland has been an officer with the Bellingham Police Department for three years, police said. The Whatcom County Sheriff’s Department is leading the investigation into the shooting.
A Charleston jury on Wednesday reached a $1.3 million verdict for a couple who said they were arrested because they accused a white state trooper of racial profiling during a 2012 traffic stop. The judgment ended a three-day trial in the civil rights lawsuit by Catherine and Jerome Newkirk, who were pulled over for speeding by Trooper James Enzor in Florence County. The Newkirks alleged that the trooper had used excessive force in wrongfully arresting them. Both spent more than a day in jail, but neither was permanently injured. Much of their ordeal, though, was captured on the lawman’s in-car camera.
Shocking body camera footage shows a Queensland police officer laughing as a teenage boy lay unconscious from a suspected drug overdose. Charlie Robertson, 19, died shortly afterwards - but he could have been saved had police called for paramedics instead of walking away, a coronial inquest has heard. The footage was released as the inquest at the Coroners Court of Queensland drew to a close this week and was first reported by Nine News. The seven police officers barged into a Gold Coast home in March, 2015 and found Mr Robertson unconscious on a bed. The footage shows them attempting to ruse him without success. A police officer is heard laughing on the tape. A doctor told the inquest Robertson would have had a very high likelihood of surviving had the officers called for medical help, the news station reported. The inquest heard Mr Robertson overdosed from GHB and cocaine, according to Nine News. While the coroner, Terry Ryan, isn't expected to present his findings for some weeks, the boy's parents, Rose and Graham Robertson, told Nine News they want justice. 'Rose and I will never walk away. We will see that justice is done and that the laws are changed so it doesn't happen to any other family,' Graham Robertson said. 'They left our boy to die.'
Following revelations last year that police departments had gained special access to the social networks to track protesters, Facebook, which owns Instagram, announced on Monday that it had updated its rules to state that developers could not “use data obtained from us to provide tools that are used for surveillance”.
Not only did this young black man stand up for the officers against this young punk, the cops actually even protected the young jackass from getting his ass whooped BADLY by this guy he clearly didn't want any part of. Once again we see these young big mouths are all talk when they know cameras are recording them berating officers, but when someone who could careless if the camera is rolling is ready to throw-down, suddenly they're scared.
If you were curious just how much crap officers had to put up with, take a gander at this video showing a young black man berating two officers who were simply trying to get a cup of coffee. This is a prime example of how much patience officers have.
Eyewitness footage has emerged of a good Samaritan intervening to stop a man who attacked a deputy after the cop tried to pull him over. Passer-by Ashad Russell shot Edward Strother, who attacked Deputy Dean Bardes, punching him repeatedly and pinning him to the road. Newly released cell phone videos show Strother pinning Deputy Bardes to the ground after the deputy chased the suspect several miles on I-75. Drivers pulled over to watch the incident unfold, with some capturing footage and images on their cell phones.The terror can be clearly heard in the witnesses' voices as they recorded the unfolding incident. The footage captured the moment Russell, a civilian, intervenes to stop the incident, approaching the two men with his weapon raised. Bardes pleads with him: 'Shoot him! Shoot him!' as he struggles with Strother, who he believed was armed. Russell, who has a concealed weapons permit, raised his gun, and fired three shots, all of which hit Strother.Seconds later, Russell dropped his weapon and slowly walked away to wait for deputies. On the film three shots clearly ring out as the witnesses describe seeing Strother 'on top of the cop'. Medics rushed Strother to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead. A total of around a dozen photos and videos were handed over to the state attorney’s office, which determined the shooting was justified with the life of the deputy in danger. Lee County Sheriff's Office released a single photograph of the incident in which is praised Russell as a 'hero'. Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott hailed both the deputy and his savior as heroes in an emotional Facebook post about the attack. He revealed how Bardes, who usually brings recruits along with him to train, was working alone on Monday. 'Earlier this week, two heroes met on I-75 and while they had never met before, one would save the others life. 'Ironically, this was the first day in a while that Deputy Bardes was alone on patrol because as a Field Training Officer, he typically has a recruit riding with him to learn the business,' he said. Thanking the man who saved his colleague's life, Sheriff Scott said: 'I thank the hero that recognized the imminent threat, rushed to Deputy Bardes’ aid, and ultimately stopped that threat. 'In a day and age where race is a near instant focus for media and other pundits in police incidents, the fact is that this hero happens to be a man of color who stopped another man of color from further harming or killing a white cop; thereby reminding us that black lives matter, blue lives matter, and indeed all life matters.' The man's gun was seized as evidence but replaced immediately by Shoot Straight, he added. Bardes was taken to hospital alongside his attacker but is not thought to have suffered serious injuries.
The harrowing screams of a little girl have been captured on police cameras after her father was shot dead in front of her by an officer following a high speed chase of their family van. Roy Evans Jr., 37, was killed in front of his three young children and girlfriend Amanda Pauley in Strongsville, Ohio on Tuesday when he was eventually stopped by police following a 14-minute chase. Evans was forced to stop his vehicle when he drove across spike strips that officers had placed across the Interstate 71. Police dispatch logs say Evans had reached down to light a cigarette just before he was fatally shot by an officer. Officers could be seen approaching the vehicle with their guns drawn just moments before. Dash cameras captured his distraught daughter screaming out for her mother as officers appeared to lead Pauley away. Evans' son could also be heard in the footage crying for his father, while Pauley begged officers: 'Please don't let him die'. The Ohio Attorney General's Office said no weapons were found in the van during a search by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation. They are now investigating the shooting to determine whether or not the van itself was used as a weapon. Pauley, who had been dating Evans for 10 years, said he was wrong to speed away from the cops and she had begged him to stop, but believes he should have been jailed and not shot dead.'I see that man's face every night when I close my eyes,' Pauley told Fox8. 'I'll never forget the vibrations of the gun. I'll never forget the man I love falling, his blood all over me. 'That cop had no right to open the car door and shoot him twice in the chest.' Few details of the shooting have been released apart from the Strongsville police dispatch log. It lists brief descriptions of radio calls made by officers. The dispatch log indicated that the van had rammed one of the police cruisers during the 14-minute chase. The first police radio call was logged shortly before 2.30am on Tuesday and indicated that an officer had tried to stop Evans but he refused to pull over. The van exited the interstate before re-entering the interstate on its southbound lanes. The officer reported that the van was traveling with no headlights on and that its engine was 'smoking.' Minutes later, an officer said the Ohio State Highway Patrol was setting up spike strips. The dispatch report said the van ran over the spike strips at more than 90 mph. Three minutes later, an officer reported that a 'balding' white male was reportedly seen 'reaching down below, lighting a cigarette.' An entry a minute later said shots were fired. Strongsville has not identified the officer who fired the fatal shot. None of the officers was wearing body cameras, but their cruisers were equipped with dashboard cameras.

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 13 March, 2017 - A man shot by police Monday morning after he was seen waving a rifle at bystanders near a busy intersection began his day with two ominous posts on Facebook, including a video filmed in a small bathroom where he showed off his weapon and a bullet (shown in the the second part of this video).
Though police have not released a name, friends on social media and the man's father have identified him as Glenn Justin Ironchild, who uses the nickname Occo.
Further clues to the man's identity can be found in the video itself, posted Monday morning. In it, Ironchild is seen wearing a white ballcap with the letters O.G. — for "original gangster" — printed on the front. A white hat with the same letters was seen on the street shortly after the shooting.
At 10:47 a.m. Monday, Ironchild posted on Facebook: As of this morning I quit my job … I quit giving a shit. I have guns I been earning. I'm locked n loaded .... I have no reason to go all out 'n start killing people like i usually do. my ILLUMINATI has taken effect … to prove my LOYALTY ima kill myself and come back. LORD OCCO … HAIL SATAN.
Eleven minutes later, Ironchild posted a two-and-a-half-minute rambling video, during which he showed off his rifle. At 11:20 a.m., he posted one more message that read: My phones gonna die but ima show something g you haven't seen before … Prepare.
At about 11:30 a.m., people near 137th Avenue and 50th Street called police to report they had seen a man carrying a rifle.
At least one witness saw the man load the rifle, acting deputy chief Darren Derko said at a news conference Monday afternoon.
Officers quickly rushed to the scene.
When the man saw police, "he turned and fired on them," Derko said.
A 10-year veteran officer fired three shots and hit the man.
Police did not say how many shots struck the man.
The wounded man was taken to hospital in critical condition.
He was still alive late Monday afternoon, police said.
Edmonton Transit confirmed that a bus windshield was hit by a stray bullet. No one on board was injured.
No information was released about whether that bullet was fired by police or the armed man.
Glenn Ironchild Sr. said he saw his son's postings on Facebook on Monday morning and tried to reach him with text messages, but got no response.
He said his son has three daughters.
His son did not finish high school, he said, but was a normal teenager who played hockey and golf. He had recently worked for a roofing company.
Glenn Ironchild Jr. was wanted on an outstanding warrant at the time of shooting for failing to appear in court to answer to a pair of alleged breaches of bail conditions. He had been ordered to remain inside an approved residence overnight and stay away from alcohol.
In May 2010, Ironchild was convicted of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm and possession of a dangerous weapon, a sword. He was sentenced to seven months in jail and two years of probation.
In July 2012, he was convicted of impaired driving and sentenced to one month in jail and given a one-year driving prohibition.
Orange, CA, 12 March, 2017 - A man armed with a knife who had barricaded himself in his van was fatally shot Sunday night in Orange following a bizarre standoff in which police and firefighters used a hose to force him from the vehicle.
The shooting happened around 12:30 a.m. at Katella Avenue and Glassell Street where officers pulled Michael Perez, 33, over for having a broken tail light.
Police said he refused to exit the white GMC van and proceeded to light a cigarette when there was a can of gasoline in the vehicle.
So officers broke the passenger side window and shot water from a fire hose into the van to “prevent the suspect from setting fire to himself” and to the van, said Sgt. Rob Thorsen of the Orange Police Department. “They broke out some windows. They filled the car up with water to prevent him from igniting the container or the gas rag,” said Lt. Fred Lopez. “He comes out through the driver’s window. And at some point, they tried to detain him, but he produces a knife.

Deputies said they were forced to open fire on an "aggressive" pit bull in Wittmann on Sunday. According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Sgt. Daniel McPheeters and Deputy Fernando DeLaTorre conducted a welfare check after receiving a tip about possible criminal activity at the house in the evening near 243rd Avenue and Patton Road. As they approached the home, a dog started barking and the two started to back away. That's when Sgt. McPheeters slipped and fell.

Officers were arresting Jobe for allegedly violating a court order to stay away from a home, according to 3-TV. Jobe is seen in the video being combative as she kicked one of the officers and screamed: 'I got my son!' She was referring to her son, who was reportedly down the street. Jobe also screamed that she was pregnant as she was placed in handcuffs. The officers said they were spit on, kicked and bit by Jobe, but the three camera angles only show her kicking them.
