Another Kidnapped Victim Killed By Trigger Happy Pigs
Gunfire from cops, not bank robbers, killed hostage: Misty Holt-Singh, 41, was struck about 10 times by police bullets. She was one of three women taken hostage by gunmen during a holdup of a Bank of the West branch on July 16.
A Northern California mother taken hostage by bank robbers last month was killed by police gunfire during a high-speed chase and shootout with three suspects armed with a semiautomatic rifle, Stockton police said Monday.
Misty Holt-Singh, 41, was struck about 10 times by police bullets, according to a preliminary ballistics report. She was one of three women taken hostage by the gunmen during a holdup of a Bank of the West branch on July 16.
Two suspects were also found dead with her after a final, furious gunbattle with police. The surviving suspect, 19-year-old Jaime Ramos, of Stockton, has been charged with murder and kidnapping. He was not wounded.
The other two hostages managed to escape during the chase; one suffered an unspecified gunshot wound.
