STOCKTON - An attorney for the family of Misty and Paul Singh said Thursday that standard police practices were not used by Stockton police during a bank robbery, hostage-taking, police chase, and deadly shootout three months ago. Misty Singh was one of three hostages abducted during the robbery. She and two suspects were killed.
"Indiscriminate police gunfire was directed at the vehicle after the pursuit, knowing full well Misty was inside the vehicle. Standard practice dictates when there's a hostage inside, secure the area, hunker down and wait it out," attorney Greg Bentley said.
