UPDATE: NOT SHOOTER: Was Local Shooter a Policeman?

UPDATE: RETRACT QUESTION. There may have been confusion on the part of the source about which friend of Mrs. Kantaphone was involved in the shooting. It appears Hawthorne, the actual shooter, was not a policeman.

We haven't seen it in the corporate news reporting, but AW has heard from a usually reliable source that the shooter (Johnny Hawthorne) in the Mekin Kantaphone killing is a police officer.

Reporter Melissa Sherman did note "If a person receives harassing or threatening communication, Sydoriak said the person should contact the authorities as soon as possible. Sydoriak said there were no complaints from Hawthorne about harassment by Kantaphone." It seems like a police officer would have known to do this.

Prior to the shooting, Hawthorne had been getting threatening text messages from Kantaphone. Kantaphone's wife was in the residence with Hawthorne at the time Kantaphone started breaking down the door and was shot dead by Hawthorne.

I hope the reporter Ms. Sherman isn't your reliable source. If so FIRE her because she knows nothing but hear say. he was not a police officer.
