It seems this manhunt has gotten dangerous and people are getting shot.
No, not by the fugitive in question, by the guys paid to make us feel safe...

Saw news of the other two shootings earlier on here:
Maybe just me but this looks like sheer criminal / negligent use of firearms by the police officers involved. Seriously, whatever happened to identifying of targets and threat assessment? Seems these days they just like to open fire, maybe thinking they'll be hailed as heroes, and if it all goes to pot, the worst they'll likely get is paid Administrative leave before the department brush it under the carpet and allow them to return to duty unscathed.
In pure speculation mode here...so bear with me:
The police officers in mention know they are looking for a "cop killer (it is alleged after all)" and happen upon a vehicle that looks close enough. To be the hero of their department, they chose to unleash a hail of bullets, thus ending the life of said killer.....but wait....this car isn't the same as what is being reported.....make something up! Windows are tinted! It was on the streets at early hours! We were protecting our own! And on and on and on.......

Didn't they say it was about some training exercise or something? Didn't hear that version. Kind of figured this guy didn't go spastic over nothing. That info is interesting now.
Hopefully, they don't find him because if they do, I don't think it will look good on his end.
If he needs someone to watch his Titan for him, I'm over here.
