Last evening Officer Michael Halsey was taking statements from eyewitnesses in front of Fast Eddie’s Diner of a sniper attack that occurred on November 24th. All witnesses claimed they were standing on the corner debating having dinner when a shot streaked through the air aimed one of the witnesses and victim, Mr. Beau Wright’s head. Luckily, he happened to be wearing a hat that was very near and dear to his heart. Although the hat met an untimely passing Mr. Wright was not injured and escaped the incident without injury. Officer Halsey who was on foot patrol happened on the scene and as people began to flee and called for backup. With Officer Jay Biafra joined Halsey on the scene where the suspect was attempting to flee from the crime. Although the suspect injured himself in a fall to the ground from the diner roof, he was able to run from the scene evading the officers warning and tazor strike.
The suspect was later captured that evening by officers after leaping into the water and taking the officers on a short but wet chase into the sewers. The suspect was shot once by police in the leg and two in the buttocks for good measure before he fell to the ground and passed out. He was carried to AP Hospital for medical treatment, identification and pre-processing. So apparently it is not even safe to get a burger anymore or talk about getting a burger as Officer Halsey explained to the witnesses last evening. Halsey claimed that the event might have been a target on Wright but provided no proof to him. A redheaded female officer who was unknown to the press claimed that Wright might have in fact provoked the incident which drew a number of complaints from the victims of this crime. Officer Jay Biafra was called and then took charge over statements for the Halsey and the other officer stating that he was new the force and still in training as he calmed clearly upset witnesses who volunteered their time to the APPD.
APPD confirmed the same prisoner in custody at the APH attempted escape last evening. He managed to get hold of the guards and tried unlocking the cuffs that were clipped to the hospital bed rail. APH staff alerted the APPD who arrived and tazed the suspect after a warning was given for him to become compliant. The suspect point transported to the APPD jail once he was made compliant.
