Eyewitness, Nick Pugh, takes Brooke Baldwin through the chilling events regarding the LAX shooting scene. Police handcuffed Nick Pugh and took him to the ground thinking he was a central suspect. He chronicles his daunting experience.
The headline, that the police handcuffed Nick Pugh and held him on the ground, is kind of excessive. He was scared, didn't want to get hurt, was an innocent passenger and wanted to get away from the area. He put some distance between himself and the gunfire by going out the emergency exit and was running along the tarmac, between lanes. It isn't surprising that the police would want to know why.
I doubt they thought he was "THE" central suspect, as he wasn't carrying a rifle or weapon. In fact, he was fortunate the police noticed him and got him safely back inside. Can you imagine actually running into the central suspect, all alone out there on the tarmac, with jet engine noise, no one to hear or see you? It must have been terrifying, to him, everyone, like a nightmare but true.
And a shooter can't drop his gun? Isn't it strange that he had no boarding pass and no ID, in addition to choosing an escape path that was unique to him? Your response is oddly defensive of actions that you can only verify from one source.
