Wednesday July 16, 2014 14 police vehicles damaged. 3 killed (2 suspect one hostage) 3 suspects: 2 killed 1 arrested  Stockton AK-47 Bank Robbery Shootout Terrorist Shootout After a bank robbery were 2 had robbed the same bank before, customer Misty Holt-Singh was taken hostage.  Three men  robbed a Bank of the West branch and took three women hostage, a bank customer and two bank employees. The robbers stole an employee's blue Ford Explorer, and at the end of a chase and rolling gun battle, she and 2 suspects was killed by 10 of 600 rounds that riddled the stopped suspect vehicle, while two other hostages fled or were dumped out of vehicle. Third suspected robber survived by using Holt-Singh as a shield was arrested. 14 police vehicles were disabled, including an armored one, by firing at them during an hour-long 63 mile chase spanning 3 counties using military terrorist tactics. They were armed with an AK-47 type 7.62 rifle and 3 handguns. Twice they eluded officers but chose to ambush officers instead of escaping. Police Foundation concluded [unreasonably???] that police were at fault by firing 600 rounds into the stopped suspect vehicle at the end of the chase without trying to not hit the innocent hostage being used as a human shield. "Some officers fired indiscriminately without a clear target" Similar cases: 1997 North Hollywood  shooting, in which Los Angeles police officers found themselves initially outgunned by two bank robbers in body armor, and the 2013 Christopher Dorner manhunt

Conspiracy theory: could be like Christian Taylor staged shooting by police for lawsuit and to disarm police in a War On Police? Why were other two hostages released?

*Facts

  • Bank: Two of the three gunmen had robbed the same bank before,
  • Chase lasted more than an hour, spanned three counties and covered more than 63 miles of highway. The robbers attempted to ambush police and unleashed more than 100 rounds from an AK-47 during the chase, the report stated. Fourteen police cars were disabled and several buildings and other vehicles were hit by stray bullets.
  • Gang: Police said the two men and 19-year-old Jaime Ramos, all members or associates of the violent Norteños street gang, 
  • Two of the bank robbers killed
  • One hostage killed
  • “sentinel” event that will change law enforcement forever, similar to the 1997 North Hollywood [another terrorist] shooting, in which Los Angeles police officers found themselves initially outgunned by two bank robbers in body armor, and the 2013 Christopher Dorner manhunt, in which a former LAPD officer [terrorist] hunted local police before he died in a Big Bear gun battle
  • Suspects: Jaime Ramos suspect arrested. Father of Alex Martinez, 27, and mother of Gilbert Renteria Jr., 30, told Bay Area news stations over the weekend that their children’s involvement in last week’s bank robbery stunned them, and they expressed regret for the death of Misty Jean Singh, 42.
  • “Sympathetic firing,” where they shoot because their colleagues are shooting, even if they haven’t identified a specific target.
