“Homicide 1300 Block Columbia MPD Was Right There”


This is getting beyond insane. From a Council Member Jim Graham email:

“Sadly I must inform you that an adult male (not yet identified) was shot five times in about the same location that Paul Jones was killed on January 9. He was pronounced at the hospital a short time later. This all occurred just after 10 PM.

This is the same block that has had a police post and a light tower every day for months.

The light tower was not up due to the rain. But Cmdr Kucik informs me that the police officer was at the post in the middle of the block at the very time this person was shot. Other officers were nearby and responded immediately.

This means that the shooting occurred just a stone’s throw from a police officer. He heard the shots and went to the body.

We are awaiting more information.”
