    No height weight race? I’m sure the guy bleeding to death appreciates your PC reporting.

      No worries. If you see a guy in a red shirt, black shirt, and tan hat in the next few days or few weeks, just call the police, bc you found the guy.

      Unfortunately, police haven’t released weight. As for height, they only said he is short. Without more detailed information on a person’s physical characteristics, we generally do not report the person’s race. We try to avoid stereotypes, and when police give limited information, it can lead to stereotypes. As Ryan says below, it is correct that police said the man is Hispanic. But without more detailed information about the man’s weight, height and other physical characteristics, we have decided not to include what police said about the man’s race in the story at this time.

    The police report on twitter says short hispanic male. That’s just useful information, like “late model chevy malibu” instead of “car”

    Well Mayor/Chief, guess it’s time for another “safety walk”?
