On Monday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department mistakenly shot and killed Tosh.O production assistant John Winkler while he was fleeing from an armed attacker. Winkler was hanging with friends in the apartment below him when a man who lived nearby took them hostage at knifepoint. After receiving a 911 call, police arrived at the apartment where they were told the attacker was a thin man in a black shirt. When they pounded on the door, the hostages used it as an opportunity to escape. But when Winkler ran out, behind a victim covered in blood, three deputies fired their duty weapons at him. Later, they found the real assailant choking the third hostage inside the apartment. He was arrested and charged. The deputies were removed from patrol after the shooting but are expected to return to full duty next week, sheriff’s officials said. Read about it here…[HuffPost]
