So everyone is getting butt-mad about the “racial injustice” on the AHMAUD ARBERY as a racially-motivated case. What about this one: a young black gun man sniped an old couple while they visited their son’s grave.
Where is the outrage?
A GUNMAN who shot dead a husband and wife at a veterans’ cemetery was found dead from a gunshot wound in a nearby woodland just hours later.
Sheldon C. Francis, 29, had been identified by police as the suspect in the killing of an 86-year-old man and his wife, 85, in Delaware on Friday morning.
The couple have not yet been named, and it is not clear whether they were known to Francis.
Officials officials have said they were from Elkton, Maryland, and that they were shot at Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bear.
The woman was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene, while her husband died after being taken to hospital.
State police spokeswoman Senior Corporal Heather Pepper said that officers exchanged gunfire with a suspect at around 12.08pm before he escaped into a nearby wooded area.
An emergency alert system was used to warn local residents of the situation and to instruct them to shelter in place.
A number of evacuations were also carried out.
Francis was later found dead from a gunshot wound in the wooded area.
It was not immediately clear whether the wound was self-inflicted or had been sustained in the earlier shoutout with police.
No officers were harmed in the incident.
A spokesperson said today: “Francis was located deceased at approximately 4:00 p.m., on the date of the incident, in a wooded area located just off of Brennan Blvd., in the development of Brennan Estates, which is adjacent to the grounds of the cemetery.”
Delaware governor John Carney said: "To think of a situation like that on that facility is just heartbreaking.
“The final resting place of the men and women who served our country.”
