A Massachusetts police chief is now saying that UAH shooting suspect Amy Bishop shot and killed her brother during an argument, and the case may have been mishandled by the police department more than two decades ago when the fatal shooting occurred.
The Boston Globe reported that Amy Bishop, a biology professor at UAH who is accused of shooting and killing three colleagues yesterday, accidentally shot her 18-year-old brother, Seth M. Bishop, in the abdomen with a 12-gauge shotgun in December 1986.
The report said Bishop was asking her mother, Judith, how to properly unload the gun when it when off and shot Seth.
Braintree Police Chief Paul Frazier is now offering a different account of the shooting to The Globe: "Bishop had shot her brother during an argument and was being booked by police when the police chief at the time ordered the booking process stopped and Bishop released to her mother," the paper reports on its Web site. Records from the case have been missing since 1987.
"I don't want to use the word 'coverup,' but this does not look good," Frazier said.
Another newspaper, The Boston Herald, is reporting that Bishop also pointed the gun at a passing car after her brother's shooting.
EDITOR'S NOTE: I have the feeling that at some point the Lamestream Media will put the blame on Bush and the Republican Party for this mass killing because the GOP supports Second Amendment rights to own guns.
