Vincent Gillespie

Gillespie was seen on surveillance in the Lower West Tunnel taking a police shield and shoving it toward officers. He was near the same area where Roseanne Boyland eventually died.

It is possible Gillespie was acting in self-defense or the defense of others.

Vincent Gillespie was bleeding and sustained injuries during the incident.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
