Witness Account of Braunstein Capture

This from

Witness Wesley Gifford said he was walking in the area of the University of Memphis campus when he saw an officer draw his gun on the suspect and try to pepper-spray him. He said the suspect turned his back to the officer and stabbed himself in the neck.

"He fell over, keeled over, down on his knees -- blood spread everywhere. He tried to get up one more time, and he wasn't getting up," he told CNN-affiliate WHBQ.

Linda Bonnin, the university's associate vice president for marketing communications, said a university employee spotted Braunstein on campus at 2 p.m. and alerted police. Another official said the employee had seen Braunstein on television, and knew he was a fugitive.

Police recieved a tip on Braunstein's location after he was seen on America's Most Wanted. According to the report, Braunstein had donated blood for $20.00, trying to get money to make it to Kansas.
So far, Braunstein has been said to be in stable condition.

Damn shame he didn't finish the job.

America's Most Wanted is a great show, for this very reason.

Great post, L.
