The Police Department have not released the persons identity or any information about why. All we can do is speculate on what the illegal was doing and why, which is probably going to be closer to the truth than what is released to the general public.
Mainstream news and certain Law Enforcement Agencies do not believe in telling the public the truth and they spin it so that the sheep will stay sheep. I believe that We The People need the blunt truth and that whatever intel is available needs to be released to the public.
This is a developing story and we will update as we find the truth.
