John Winkler (9000)

4/10/2014: Shortly after 9:30 p.m., deputies say two men burst out of an apartment building and ran towards them. The first man who exited was bleeding profusely from the neck. Winkler followed close behind. The deputies on scene apparently were confused when they saw Winkler “lunging at the back of the fleeing victim,” LASD Chief Bill McSweeney told CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Serene Branson. Deputies shot Winkler four times and the other victim was shot once. Winkler died from his injuries at a hospital. The other victim survived. Investigators now say Winkler and the man who was bleeding were actually victims of a third man, Alexander McDonald, who lived inside the apartment building.
