FBI Investigate Possible Link Between Recent Killings Of Law Enforcement In NorCal

FBI Investigate Possible Link Between Recent Killings Of Law Enforcement In NorCal

Federal agents in the Bay Area are scrambling to figure out whether the seemingly random slaying of a sheriff’s deputy in an unincorporated part of Santa Cruz might be linked to the fatal shooting of a pair of federal agents in Oakland late last month, as well as a handful of other crimes, the LA Times reports.
On Saturday,  Santa Cruz sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller, 38, was shot and killed in Ben Lomond, an unincorporated area near Santa Cruz. While pursuing a suspect, Gutzwiller and other officers, several of whom were also wounded, were ambushed by gunfire and explosives.
At the scene, authorities arrested and booked Steven Carrillo, a Sergeant on active duty at the nearby Travis Air Force Base.
Carrillo, 32, was a member of the 60th Security Forces Squadron, according to a Travis Air Force Base spokesman. And it also appears he might be the killer of several law enforcement officers during what appears to have been a multi-day spree.
Carrillo was repeatedly shot while being taken into custody and is reportedly in serious condition. It’s unclear whether the explosives found in his car were intended to be used during a broader attack. The FBI says it is looking into Carrillo’s possible involvement in several other crimes last month, including an attack on two Federal Protective Service agents in Oakland last month that left one dead, and one critically injured.

Video posted online as DA says case of Georgia man who was chased and killed will go to grand jury


The fatal shooting of a black man — apparently recorded on video in February and posted online Tuesday by a local radio station host — will go to a grand jury in coastal Georgia, according to a district attorney.

Elements of the disturbing video are consistent with a description of the shooting given to police by one of those involved in the incident.

Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was jogging in a neighborhood outside Brunswick on February 23 when a former police officer and his son chased him down, authorities said. According to a Glynn County Police report, Gregory McMichael later told officers that he thought Arbery looked like a person suspected in a series of recent break-ins in the area.

After they chased down Arbery, McMichael told police, Arbery and McMichael’s son Travis struggled over his son’s shotgun. McMichael said two shots were fired before Arbery fell to the street, the report said.

In a letter to police, George Barnhill , one of the district attorneys who has recused himself from the case and who saw the autopsy report, wrote that Arbery sustained three wounds during the struggle for the gun.

Tom Durden, the district attorney for the Atlantic Judicial Circuit, wrote in a news release obtained by CNN on Tuesday that he expects to present the case to the next available grand jury in Glynn County to consider whether charges are merited for those involved in Arbery’s death.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, courts are currently prohibited from empaneling grand juries.

Durden did not return CNN’s calls for comment, but the local branch of the NAACP provided CNN with the document — labeled as a press release — which matches a statement Durden gave to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

I can’t believe this incident happened back in February, and the investigation just started in April.
According to the report, victim Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was shot dead in the Satilla Shores neighborhood after a confrontation with Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael. Both of whom were armed, according to the Glynn County Police.
McMichael and son were trying to make a citizen’s arrest, but Arbery’s mother says that the shooting was an “act of racial violence.”
What complicates the case is that McMichael (the father) is a retired investigator in the district attorney’s office. Again, I asked why did it take so long for an investigation to begin in this matter and this won’t help clear things up. Prosecutors claim the two acted within the scope of Georgia’s citizen’s arrest statute.
George E. Barnhill, the Waycross County D.A., recused himself for what would have been a conflict of interest, since McMichael worked in his office and on top of that, despite recusing himself from the case, Barnhill wrote a letter to the police department detailing how Arbery had a criminal past including a conviction for shoplifting and probation violation in 2018, the Times reported.
