Quotes

"They left the event together with Taylor driving a family member’s vehicle."
"Our thorough review of the facts and circumstances surrounding the shooting of Mr. Batista determined that [the officers involved] fired in self-defense and defense of each other and [a third officer] after Mr. Batista ignored verbal commands to stop reaching for a gun and then drew it in a manner that represented a lethal threat to the officers. In the course of that encounter, after firing at a civilian, Mr. Batista pointed one firearm, had easy access to another, and fired multiple rounds at the officers, in total disregard for the safety of dozens of other citizens in the area. I have thus concluded that the officers involved acted reasonably and lawfully and that, therefore, no criminal charges are warranted."
"Hibbert attempted to drive forward but was stopped by witnesses. When told he struck someone he became hysterical and was transported to Brigham and Women's Hospital. Clinical blood work undertaken by hospital staff was subpoenaed by prosecutors and revealed a blood-alcohol level of .14, well above the legal limit for driving."
"This is a neighborhood that is starting to really come into its own" Conway said. Some "really, really run down buildings" could soon be replaced by condos or get upgraded, she said
