of Halsey Street and Wilson

following the shooting.
The offi cers headed a few blocks
south of the intersection to Boardwalk
Wine and Spirits, where they
encountered three people who’d
been shot. Surrounded by shattered
glass from the blown-out storefront,
the victims told offi cers that the
gunman had fl ed the scene on foot,

the department shows the responding
cops approaching the alleged
gunman, who was crouched on the
sidewalk in front of a nearby home
halfway down the block, and demanded
he drop his fi rearm.
“They observed the man holding
a fi rearm in his left hand, and
gave commands for the man to drop
the gun,” Holmes said. “The man
does not comply and instead raises
the fi rearm in the direction of the

victims who were shot on Halsey

the identities of the victims.
A least one fi rearm belonging
to the suspect was recovered at
the scene, and the investigation remains
active and ongoing by the
Force Investigation in conjunction
with the Detective Bureau.
