Why were the suspects fleeing in the first place? Either I missed it, or the article didn’t mention it. The police make mistakes, but running from them is just plain stupid. Even if you’re a minority afraid of police brutality. The simple fact is it’s going to go far, far worse for you if you don’t cooperate. I’d rather have a broken arm and/or my face smashed against the pavement than be shot 23 (or 24) times.
Police said shots were heard or fired when the car first passed by them.
