What Assistant Commissioner Solomon Cash says
Solomon Cash says he was not certain if a bodycam was used in the incident and the police do not have a description of the three individuals that ran away.
Cash warned anyone that would engage the police with a weapon, “If you find yourself engaging in criminality and you are confronted by officers, surrender. I can tell you, if you use deadly force at officers, we have to engage you and use justifiable force toward you.”
