officer wilson was transported to temple hospital and was tragically pronounced at 6:25 p.m. ramon williams as carlton hips have both been arrested and charged with the urd many f 0 officer wilson and attempted murder of officer stephenson robbery and related offenses. and i open it up to any questions that you have. [ inaudible ] >> the game stop is in a cul-de-sac area sort of in the corner. the police car was in the parking lot, which was maybe 30 40 feet away. but the second suspect gave us a statement, a full confession upstairs. he said he never saw the police car. and when they entered the store, they did not see the officer until after they announced the robbery. [ inaudible question ].
>> that's ramon williams. we they're brothers. >> what do you know about their criminal past? one is out on parole? >> ramon williams has two arrests. carlton hips has six arrests. he got out of prison in i believe it was 2009. >> do you know at this point who shot whom? when the shots were fired. can you play that out for us? >> obviously we're still going through -- there was over 50 shots fired. but what i can tell you is that the officer was at the counter. both of the suspects then come into the store. they actually using some of the posters and the billboards as cover and they're exchanging several gun shots with the officer. >> both suspects? >> both of them are shooting at him, yes. the officer was an out and out hero and a warrior.
he fought to the very end firing at both of them. unfortunately he host his life during this gunfight. [ inaudible ] >> obviously both of the weapons that were used at the scene were confiscated. i know we did a search warrant at the house. i'm not sure if we found any other -- commissions said we did find an ak-47 inside of the house. >> did they live together? >> kwle on hollywood street. >> what kind of weapons did the suspects have? >> they both have semi automatic weapons. >> is there any indication -- [ inaudible ] >> well, i can only go by the statement that the one gave. he said he did not see the police car outside. and when he walked into the -- they walked into the store, he didn't see the police officer until they announced the robbery and then the police officer turned and then the gunfight was on. [ inaudible question ].
>> from their statements both of the funs were bought as they put it on the street. obviously we have an investigation going on into finding out who the openers were and backtracking to how these guns got in their hands. right now we do not know. they told us that they bought both of the guns on the street. >> were all of the shots fired inside the game stop? >> most of the melee was inside of the game stop. but as the suspects were trying to leave, they ran into the second officer outside and that's when the suspect is shot in the leg. [ inaudible question ].
>> they're inside the store, they're in a gunfight with the officer. okay? after he goes down both of the suspects are trying to run out of the store. that's when they get engaged with the second officer. when we have a second gunfight out, briefer but a second gunfight outside of the store. okay? one of the suspects attempts to run back in the store and sort of fit in with the patrons. he was quickly arrested and charged as well. >> was there a lot of other people in and around the store? and if so -- >> yes. it was about five or six patrons in the store. two or three employees in the store. so this officer, like i said not only in doing his job, he protected the store, he protected the store employees. like i said before, he was a hero and an absolute warrior the way he did his job. [ inaudible ] >> it was very helpful. it was crystal clear and it was able for us to identify quickly
and everything that happened and where it happened at and helped the crime scene unit as far as retrieving bullets and things of that nature. it was very helpful. [ inaudible ] >> say it one more time. [ inaudible ] >> maybe 30 seconds, 30 40 seconds. [ inaudible ] >> obviously we're looking in to see if they did any other robberies. as i stated before the suspect upstairs said this was their first robbery they did. we don't necessarily belief it. we're look into with the detective division to see if we can find out if they did any other robberies. [ inaudible ] >> he was, my understanding, he will be bedside arraigned. and when they're done with them
there, he'll come into the homicide unit and then shipped to the state. [ inaudible ] >> the only thing i can say is they thought it was going to be an easy target. >> is this a death penalty case in your opinion? >> well obviously that's up to a jury but in any view, yes. [ inaudible ] >> yes. and there's one outside that caught some of the action from outdoors, from a distance. but there is some video that was outside as well. but the majority of the video was captured from inside the game stop. >> was there a body camera? >> they did not have body cameras on no. >> for clarity, you said there were two cameras that you were able to use? >> there's cameras inside the
facility four different angles that you can look at. and then there's another camera from a neighboring building that's outside that actually captured the exchange of gun fire between officer stephenson and hipps at the time he was shot hipps was shot. >> in looking at that video, did it seem as though -- do you really believe that these guys -- >> i've been around a long time. we've got violent vicious people out here. that doesn't surprise me. when when you look at the actions of the officer, he redefined what a hero is. he stepped away from the counter. there were civilians there. couple in line. he stepped away so the shots weren't going directly toward them. they were going to him. he's moving back and forth firing at both suspects.
they were both firing at him. he was taking rounds. he was actually being hit during the exchange of gun fire but he continued to fight, continued to shoot until the fatal wound was fired and it brought him down. and i mean it absolutely demonstrated the kind of courage and that nasty that this particular officer had. [ inaudible ] >> absolutely to make sure that he protected the people and they did not draw any fire. that's why you don't have more people struck. and i don't count the bad guy. but the officer of course was fatally wounded. [ inaudible ] >> he's got them on now in the hospital. he's cuffed now with wilson's handcuffs. [ inaudible ] >> officer stephenson heard the shots, he came out. the two came out. one rand toward -- they saw
stephenson, they took off running. he fired a shot at stephenson he returned fire took him down. the office one saw stephenson immediately stopped and retreated back into the store. that was williams who went back in the store trying to blend in. [ inaudible ] >> the citizens helped us. he tried to conceal, tried to change clothes, came out of the hoodie he was in tried to hide the dpun. told the people behind the counter to not say anything. but they of course let us know that he was the suspect. [ inaudible ] >> no. no. you can tell it was a fatal wound when he went down. that was it. [ inaudible ] >> he was outside. i don't know if he was in the car or just outside the car. but one thing, he was getting a video game for his son who had
done well in school. but monday is also his son's birthday. so he was just stopping to pick up a gift. >> can you tell us what's going on at the game stop today? >> well it's still a scene. i imagine it's still being secured. so other than processing of the scene, there's a lot of ballistic evidence. you can just tell from the video. so that's still being collected. so it is still secured. >> officers in the 22nd today, some of them have to go back to work? >> they're not going to go back. we're going to cover for them. we're going to get counseling for them. i spoke to his partner this morning and make sure that she takes care of himself. obviously he did not sleep all night. it is very -- i mean it's traumatic. but we're going to do everything we can to see to it that the men and the women of 22nd district are taken care of. in the meantime officers from
other districts will fill in and cover during this period of time. so it's just -- it's very very hard. the fop is right here. john can come forward and say a few things on behalf of the fop. >> once again, unfortunately we're united in grief here today. our job today we can figure out on another day why these excuse me run the streets. but our job today is to support the family, both the family of the officer, the family of the 22nd district which unfortunately in as many years has lost two of their police officers. that's our focus today and that's what we're here today. we want to remember this officer, how they lived. and we can worry about what happened with these scumbags later. thank you, commissioner. >> thank you. [ inaudible ] >> have you ever seen any encounter like this before?
>> i've seen a lot of heroic actions on the part of police officers over the years. very proud to be part of this profession. i've not seen any that rose above what i saw on that video. it was absolutely incredible what this officer was able to do. he was one of our very very best, no question about it. and we're all in shock and we're all going to suffer this loss for a very very long period of time. it has affected us all. but right now or focus has to be on taking care of his family and making sure they get through it. making sure the men and women of the 22 nd get through this and all of us together find a way to keep moving forward. [ inaudible ] >> don't have any of that yet. i spoke to his grandmother this morning. all of that is yet to be arranged. as soon as we know more we'll let you all know. but right now please just say a prayer for the family.
