“The family’s account differs vastly from the statements of dozens of witnesses,” officer Debra Brown said. “The relatives are free to believe whatever they want, but their statements are largely inconsistent.”
The eyewitnesses supporting the victim’s innocence claim that Cabot used a pistol to frighten the initiators of the fight emerging outside the bar. However, the police officials insist that Cabot shot at the cars of the instigators and cops.
As the victim’s relatives state, the police officer shot him without warning. Currently, the investigation is conducted to verify the rightfulness of the officer’s actions. Additionally, the formal assessment of the police department will be administered to exclude the potential risks of misconduct.
Cabot’s friends and family describe him as a happy and friendly person. From their point of view, his attempt to suppress the emerging fight is an altruistic move.
In 2015, Cabot and his colleagues had split the purchase of lottery tickets and always evenly shared the money they won. After the shooting, it was disclosed that the victim and his co-workers gained an $87 million jackpot, and Cabot’s share was equal to $1,9 million.
