Rockford police shoot, kill man in day care center
Some excerpts :
Rockford Police Chief Chet Epperson said the officers fired on Barmore after he fought with one of them for his service gun inside a classroom at the House of Grace Daycare and Preschool.
But Marissa Brown, 17, the daughter of day care operator Sheila Brown, denied there was a struggle over a gun. She said the officers shot Barmore multiple times after he emerged from a dark boiler room with his hands up.
"The officer shined his flashlight into the boiler room and told him to come out. He came out real slow with his hands up and his head down, and they shot him," Marissa Brown told the Rockford Register-Star.
Sheila Brown said the officers fired as many as eight rounds into Barmore.
