Call in to speak with the host
On Oct 6,2012 15 year old Cameron Alexander King of Tombstone Az was shot 6 times by Tombstone Marshal James J. Norris. Norris claimed that Cameron had broke into a residence to steal guns in the middle of the night at approximately 3:30 a.m. after a 911 call was placed by Kara Bales who lived at the residence in Tombstone Az. Norris claims that after entering the residence through a broken window in the laundry room door that opened inside the home he had his service weapon drawn in one hand and flashlight in the other as they entered the home. A border patrol agent Kevin Stack followed behind him as they searched the home until they found Kara hiding in the bottom of the closet. Norris was startled and jumped back and then he asked Kara "where is he?" she pointed to a smaller closet next to the one she was in and said "he's in there" "he's in there" Norris got down on one knee and fired 4 times two of those shots hitting Cameron. The first bullet went straight through Camerons thigh breaking the bone making him fall backwards and putting him on his back he went into a sitting position the second bullet went through his wrist after he put his hands up to show Norris he wasnt armed and the other two bullets went through the wall. Norris then walked over to cameron putting a bullet through his neck that came out the side of his body and then the 6th bullet through his heart ending his young life. Upon the so called investigation Norris was placed on paid administrative leave until further notic. Norris returned back to duty 19 years later after refusing counseling and he never even had to turn over his service weapon. On Jan 11, 2013 Norris was cleared by the Cochise County Attorneys office saying that Norris had been "justified " of his actions and is currently still employed by Tombstone Marshals Office.
