STATEMENT BY PBA PRESIDENT PATRICK J. LYNCH
REACTING TO GATES AVENUE SHOOTING

“This is an unfortunate situation where the deceased convinced everyone involved — from family members to responding officers — that he was in possession of a gun. Tragically, he sought and succeeded in forcing a deadly confrontation with police.”
