Then he rescinded his decision not to speak and talked to reporters after all. Here’s some of what was said:

Apparently 11 shots were fired in the incident. Barnes did not fire his weapon. I’ll have more when it becomes known

    FIRST OF ALL, I WANT TO START BY SAYING, HOW DISGUSTING IT IS FOR “OUR” POLICE CHIEF TO GO ON TELEVISION AND TELL A BOLDFACE LIE. THIS IS WHO WE HAVE PROVIDING PROTECTION FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY OF ROSES. GO FIGURE. NOW IT’S LIKE, DO WE EVEN WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING HE HAS TO SAY? CAN WE EVEN BELIEVE ANYTHING HE HAS TO SAY? SHOW ME THE TAPE. THAT’S THE ONLY WAY HE”LL MAKE ME A BELIEVER
