Below is a statement in reference to the murder of Officer Anthony Overberg
Name please? Joe Coors -1818 Lincoln Ave., Norwood.
Were you in Lawson's Drug store tonight? I came in about 10:20 to 10:25,
I sat down at the fountain and ordered a Coca Cola. A man was sitting
to my right, with one vacant stool between us. He had a Coke in front of
him with a straw in it. He had his right hand on the glass. The next time
I noticed him was when he was in front of me, walking over to Lawson
at the cash register. He took the money out of the cash register. I was
thinking of kidding Lawson about letting people take money out of the
when he came behind me and said "sit still" I heard him open the other
cash register. Then he said,"Have you got any more money in your wallet" or
(maybe it was vault that he said). He went toward the back, and I heard
him say "You too old fellow, or I'll let you have it." Then there was a
scuffle and a shot, and I ran and as I was running across the street I
heard the other shots." I ran west on Courtland and saw nothing else.
