The victim was announced to be dead at the moment. He was named Schofield. Later, the authorities got the description of the car and the suspected person involved in the shooting. A little while later, the Lakewood area police identified the car. Meanwhile, when they were trying to reach the car and contact the driver, he opened fire on the Lakewood agents. The agents also returned fire. The name of the suspect has now been released.
Lyndon McLeod, who was killed by one of the Lakewood officers on Monday after the shooting, also captioned a picture with one of his characters in the series of his book, “It’s not a worm so much, however, I understand the point.” He also gleefully indicated that people require violence to be addressed. He discussed one of the 2014 YouTube videos titled “Mike Tyson DESTROYS Reporter!” For the Twitter account where he used the name McClay, he blasted the passive aggressiveness of the reporter and praised Tyson for utilizing direct aggression. He said that this is the plot of his book which he wrote in April 2020. He also added that the whole society is made of shitty little fucks.
These things insult the badass and get away with it where the law and enforcement protect the WEAK over STRONG. “The weak better buckle up… shit is about to get real,” he wrote. Following the press conference on Tuesday, the police have confirmed that Lyndon McLeod owned his tattoo shop/parlor with the name Flat Black Ink. He targeted each of the victims on the street of Lakewood. The police also informed that McLeod was also previously investigated in 2020 and 2021.
