News from Stockton, today, confirms that the hostage Misty Holt-Singh's fatal injuries came from police gunfire.

STOCKTON- Misty Holt-Singh's fatal injuries came from Stockton police firing on bank robbers who had taken her and two other women hostages, Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones said in a news conference this afternoon. Holt-Singh was used as a human shield by the surviving bank robbery suspect and was struck about 10 times, police said. "Singh's injuries show the cowardice of the surviving bank robbery suspect who is now in custody," Jones said this afternoon.

Stockton PD is looking at their procedures to see if they need to be revised in any way. The semi-automatic rifle taken from the suspects has been linked to other crimes.
