“You try to get help and you lose a loved one”

Police responding to domestic disturbance shoot and kill young man, 19, and a 55-year old woman who lived on the first floor of the flat.

Asked the mother of the young man, who was suffering mental troubles and reportedly had been wielding a bat: “You call the police, you try to get help and you lose a loved one,” she said. “What are they trained for? Just to kill? I thought that we were supposed to get service and protection. I mean, my son was an honors student. He’s here for Christmas break, and now I’ve lost him.”
