“He was the first person to come into our office, and he was like, ‘I’m going to get into this and get my hands on this.’
And then we got our first batch of the rifles and I went out to my office and got some and he came into our shop, took them apart, went back and started firing,” said the chief of police.
“It was a little over-the-top.
It was the most incredible thing.”
It wasn’t the first time the officer had seen something like this.
Earlier this year, police received a call that a man had gone into a restaurant armed with a gun and a rifle.
They arrested the man, but later found out he was only carrying a toy rifle and not a real firearm.
“The first thing he told me was he had no idea how to shoot, he had never been in a gunfight, he was just looking to get his hands on a rifle,” said Chief Brown.
The chief added that while he was able to capture some of the gunfire, he did not know how many people had been killed.
“I can only say that I would say that we’re a little bit more than a month out from the event, but I can say that the number of people that died has not changed significantly,” he said.
“If there’s one thing that we know for sure is we have a large, diverse community here that we work with, we work closely with.
We work closely to keep the peace and the community safe.”
