BEAVERTON, Ore. – Police said the 18-year-old man who wrestled a gun away from an officer at Beaverton City Hall and fired off a shot last week was high on mushrooms and had “superhuman strength.”

Jared Steven Leone walked into Beaverton City Hall on Friday evening and told a person at the police department’s records desk that he was overdosing on drugs and needed help. Three officers came out to the lobby and that’s when police said Leone swung a punch at one of the officers and a “melee” ensued.

Detective Sergeant Jim Shumway reviewed surveillance video of the fight. He said it took the officers six minutes to restrain Leone and take him into custody.

Leone grabbed a gun from one of the officers and fired a single shot during the fight. No one was hit. The bullet went into a wall with an empty room on the other side.

      Why? Because when people present you with factual numbers, you claim they are manipulated to keep your beliefs?

      Do you even bother looking at the FBI numbers? If you don’t believe them have you ever bothered visiting an ER, near a gang area, and ask doctors what they see each and every day? Come on racial issues have been replaced with gangs problems years ago!

      I’m from an interracial family, and likely have done more work to better my community than most people. Perhaps, you need to get involved in better the community than go around looking for you own re-charge.
