    One of my blog readers called me and told me about it. He started shooting video and cops told him to stop, even though he said everybody had a camera.

    well he probably had a "professional" camera right. We're pretty much at a point where everyone on the street has a camera. So it's a losing battle them trying to hide from the lens.

    I'd like to hear what really happened out here though. I saw one guy get hauled away - bleeding. Lots of big guns, and TONS of police cars. The crowd was talking like someone had just gotten shot - killed. But I've noticed the crows at a newly developed crime scene have exaggerated info. we'll see.

    Awesome shots! Not everybody can get close enough to photograph the suspect.

    You mind if I use a couple in a blog post I might do for my blog, Photography is Not a Crime?

    Do you know if that guy in handcuffs is who they were looking for?

    This news report is saying nobody has been arrested.

    Northeast those are great shots! Thank you for playing roving street reporter. I saw on Twitter that it was some kind of shootout. What a mess.

    thanks maria!

    Yea it's weird the article says no one was arrested. The guy in the pics was taken down by police, cuffed and taken away in a cruiser - if that's not arrested then I dont know lol.

    edit: this sounds like a more accurate report

    Yeah, they got him. I just posted about it on my blog. I'm going to post about it on MB 411 but from a different angle.

    I read on Twitter it was a bank robbery gone wrong, but couldn't see anything official to verify that. This dude looks a little underdressed to carry out a bank robbery lol!

    If you're going to rob a bank, sporting purple Chuck Taylor's is the way to go.
