A graphic 68-second video released by Detroit police Friday shows a gunman striding into one of the city’s precinct stations, spraying volleys from a shotgun at surprised officers before being fatally wounded within inches of three of his victims.
The video shows Lamar Moore, 38, walking into the precinct and past the building’s raised front desk. He pulls a shotgun he had concealed along his right side and opens fire down a hallway. He’s then seen firing more shots down the hallway as he reverses his steps back into the middle of the lobby..
The most graphic portion of the video shows Moore square off with Cmdr. Brian Davis – above the prone figures of two wounded officers – as they exchange shots with their weapons about a foot apart. Davis loses parts of two fingers from a shotgun blast and crumples to the floor. He twists around a smaller desk as Moore continues toward him, at one point hurling a trash can at the gunman.
The story about the release of video is from today – the shooting at this Detroit precinct happened on Sunday, from the text in the story.
– now, tell me – it doesn’t matter . . .
I say, it does.
