Reports indicated that this incident was a street shootout.

“People pulled out guns, shots rang out, people ran in various directions,” Police Chief Carmen Best stated.

Police caught one suspect, who was wounded during the shootout, and were on the hunt for two others, authorities reported Thursday.

Gang unit detectives reviewed security footage recorded at the scene, in front of a McDonald’s near 3rd Avenue and Pine Street. In that video, they found a known felon, police said.

“They recognized one of the subjects who was in front of that McDonald’s as a person they’d had contact with previously,” Best told reporters on Thursday. “They know him as a felon and they knew he could not be in possession of a firearm which he had in his hand in the video.”

Best reported that the wounded suspect was arrested at Harborview Medical Center for illegally possessing weapons.

Police continued pursuing two other suspects on Thursday afternoon.

The suspects were identified as two African American males—Marquise Latrelle Tolbert and William Ray Tolliver, who are both 24.

According to Best, one of the two suspects has been arrested at least 50 times, while the other has 25 arrests on his record

Based on video footage from the scene of the shootout, multiple people fired weapons after a dispute occurred outside of a McDonald’s.

Many people will likely scream for gun control but ignore how at least one of the shooters possessed a firearm illegally.

Criminals will always find ways to get guns, but for the law-abiding, gun control laws are a way to undermine gun ownership for an otherwise peaceful population.

Boy Scouts File for Bankruptcy as a Result of Declining Membership and Sexual Abuse Lawsuits

Published

on

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, The Boy Scouts of America filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to stay running as thousands of sexual abuse claims from former members pile up against the youth organization in the courts.

The organization initiated its bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware on Tuesday morning, per court documents. Consequently, all civil suits filed against the youth organization will be suspended, according to a CNN report.

The organization will likely still have to pay victims throughout the bankruptcy proceedings, but it will not have to go through the arduous jury trial process in certain states.

.“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, announced in a statement Tuesday.

“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he continued.

The New York Post recently reported that Boy Scouts have been bogged down with declining membership and rising costs. According to its 2018 tax filing, the youth group has $1.4 billion in assets.

Lawyers informed the Post that the Boy Scouts would have to make the bankruptcy go public in order to reach as many victims as possible.
