Friends and neighbours of a gunman who was shot dead by police as he fired randomly at passing cars on a Hollywood street critically wounding one man say he was deeply troubled by the recent breakup with his girlfriend.
The man wounded Friday when a gunman opened fire at passing vehicles along a downtown street in Hollywood has died, a spokeswoman at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles said Monday.
John Atterberry died shortly before 5 p.m. Monday, according to Simi Singer, the hospital spokeswoman.
The music-industry executive was shot in the jaw at Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street.
The gunman, 26-year-old Tyler Brehm, went on the rampage that ended with his being fatally shot by police, Los Angeles police spokeswoman Sgt. Mitzi Fierro has said. An amateur video captured the scene of Brehm walking down Sunset Boulevard wielding a handgun and firing at vehicles, seemingly at random. Brehm fired a “significant number” of rounds, police said.
I don’t know what kind of problem Brehm had, nor do I care. What I do care about is that California and a few other states controlled by radical left wing-nuts have make it virtually impossible for law abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms to defend themselves. What I do care about is the government violating the second amendment rights of we the people.
These kinds of crimes happen more often in California because innocent law abiding citizens are vulnerable to the thousands of armed criminals in the land of the fruits and the nuts.
