Rifle in car carrying suspect killed by Warren cop stolen

Published: Fri, October 25, 2013 @ 11:07 p.m.


The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, which is investigating the fatal shooting of Taemarr Walker, 24, early Saturday by Warren Patrolman Mike Krafcik, said one of the weapons found in the car with Walker was stolen.

The HK MP5 22LR HV rifle found in the car was stolen June 22 during a residential burglary in Warren Township, a BCI spokesman confirmed Friday.

Krafcik fired upon Walker multiple times on Risher Road near Palmyra Road at 1:50 a.m. after Walker’s car went into a ditch, and Walker crawled to the front of the car and reached under the front seat and retrieved a handgun, police said.

Vindy, why can't you show any respect for police officers? Calling them "cop " in the title is disrespectful. At least refer to them as police officer or officer.

Let's see here: the above article says he had a Heckler & Koch rifle (this model, built by Walther, has a 25-round magazine) which was stolen. This HK, depending on optics, retails for $500 to $700. And a previous article said he was reaching for a Ruger pistol -- another finely-crafted, highly reliable and not inexpensive firearm. My, my ... far from "Saturday night specials."
