Multiple articles state ….residents reported gunshots in the area .Suicide usually doesn’t involve multiple shots .News articles also state John Doe found with gunshot to top of his head ,Suicides also don’t usually include top of head gunshot wound .An execution style killing would involve gunshot to top of ones head and gun nearby may have been John Doe’s gun from exchanging gunfire with a executioner. Residents reported gunshots plural

This headline is completely wrong and not accurate. It needs to be updated as to not mislead the readers.

Suicide is not “Murder”.

“a caller reported guns shots”. Note the plural “shots” meaning more than one. It’s pretty difficult to shoot yourself in the head more than once.

Also “gunshot wound on the top of his head”. The typical suicide by firearm results in a wound on the side or front of the head, not the top.

These two facts point much more strongly to murder than suicide.

Slotoload Wrong, as a retired Detective the typical suicide by firearm is through the mouth with the exit wound out the top of the head. Multiple gunshots report doesn’t mean he shot himself multiple times it means he probably discharged the gun in the air prior to shooting himself, many suicide victims don’t want there body sitting around for animals to get to. You keep reading your crime novels and leave crime solving to the experts.

I’m just happy nobody went on the freeway and stopped traffic! You see I don’t care about murder and violence in my community, I care about the flow of traffic. And i’ll be dammed if anyone walks on that freeway and causes disruptions. But again… DONT TELL ME WHAT TO DO. And i’ll tell you what to do. Stupid snowflake. You deserve the chair! Law and order! Mayor heidi!

Sadly it sounds like a suicide if you actually took the time to read the article….slow learner I see.

Another classic wild west shooting on the central coast! Help us Lord… But hey, at least they didn’t stop traffic!

What is it with you and stopping traffic? Protesters on the Freeway is dangerous to both the drivers and the protesters, it’s also a terrible way to get people to be sympathetic to whatever it is your protesting.
