  1. Lots of unanswered questions, but this time for the police. Why did Oakley PD need a warrant 13 days later to search for shooting evidence? Why was that not collected at the time of the shooting on the 6th? Why was an emergency TRO not put in place on the 6th to prevent whatever happened 13 days later? Was the wife uncooperative herself? Are we watching a Domestic Violence Darwin Award in the making?

    • The wife did not tell the hospital or police what had happened. Someone else who was present at the incident later alerted the authorities in there town who in turn notified the brentwood pd.
