When called the presidential press Secretary for comment
When the Deputy Presidential Press Secretary, Smith Toby was asked if three bullets went into Melvin, he said; “no. All the bullets did not go into him. He fired one in the air and decided to run after they have taken the long range gun from him.”
“He fired one in his abdomen and later he fired his head. So, if there is a bullet mark(as you said) on a building, then, that might be the one he fired while they were running after him. All three bullets did not go into him,” he said.
“The incident occurred very early in the morning around 4:AM. No one was really out at that time to say they saw what happened,” he said.
