Rigo Cisneros, 40, an Army medic who served a tour in Afghanistan, observed the shooting from his home across the street.
“After the fourth or fifth shot I stuck my head out the door and could hear actual gun fire,” he said by telephone. “I took cover and observed that there was an officer down.”
It was unclear how long the shooting lasted, but Mr. Cisneros said the suspect exchanged fire with the police. He said the suspect seemed to be holding either an M4 or M16 assault rifle.
He said when the shooting stopped, he ran over and found the constable shot in the chest and another officer with less severe wounds. The suspect had been shot multiple times in the legs and upper torso, he said; two passersby had also been shot. ****Mr. Cisneros said he attempted to give CPR to the constable, but said he was immobile and had no pulse. When paramedics arrived, Mr. Cisneros said he began attending the suspect, who was the other officer had already been handcuffed.
The suspect, who lived across the street but Mr. Cisneros said he did not know him, was conscious and asked forgiveness for shooting the officers. Mr. Cisneros said the police told him that law enforcement officials initially visited the suspect’s house on Monday to deliver an eviction notice.

"We are devastated for the families that this SOB killed," stepfather Richard Weaver said.
Arnold asked Weaver if he had any indication that something like this was coming.
"He was crazy as hell," Weaver said. "At one point, we were afraid that he was going to come up here and do something to his mother and me."
Weaver said he was aware of the eviction. He said Caffall quit his job about nine months ago and proclaimed he would never work for anybody again.
