That makes a little more sense now. The police should have included such details in their report- instead of leaving everyone who hears of the tragedy to come up with their own answers based on the skeptical description of what took place.

Thoughts & prayers are with the firefighter's family. It's inconceviable to think a person could commit such a brutal attack on another. What a terrible terrible tragedy that could have been prevented if not for this criminal- scum.
