A few weeks ago, I was at drinks with friends when we got a text about an open shooter at Trader Joe’s just down the street. Gathering around a propped iPhone screen, we watched updates as they rolled in on Twitter. It was a hostage situation. Videos appeared of police rescuing children from parked cars and people climbing out of the store’s windows. Eventually, we heard an innocent women was killed.
The vague way in which the Tweet was worded made it clear to me, a criminal defense lawyer, that this woman was shot dead by the police.
