A Lynn man was shot and killed by police after an incident in which the car the suspect was riding in rammed a police vehicle, officials said.
About 9:30 last night, officers observed Brandon Payne walking with a weapon in the area of Essex Street, according to a statement from Lynn police. Payne then got into a car with other men inside. Police attempted to stop that car and another vehicle that was following the first car, police said.
Cars can be used as deadly weapons, and we all know that they can be VERY effective as such. Also Massachusetts, the land of gun control:
The suspects are charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (the motor vehicle) and firearm charges.
Chances are they were prohibited people, didn’t have permits, and probably were engaged in other illegal activities (hence why police were watching them in the first place)….odd that all the gun laws in Massachusetts didn’t stop this, and odder still that the deadly weapon employed in this attack was NOT a gun, but a car!
