Two Shootings...One Cop. Concerns?
The officer involved in the shooting and killing of a knife yielding man in
Sparta last Friday night was also involved in another shooting 16 months ago. In that case, 21 year old Jacob Olsen would not put down a rifle he had pointed at officers. Officer Booker Ferguson shot the man twice in the chest.....though he survived. We asked Police Chief Kass about the two shootings.
21 year old John Bartholomew was shot and killed Friday night after threatening family members with knives then running at Ferguson after being told to the knives down. He is now on paid administrative leave.
