Lodi Police Chief Mark Helms sent a letter Friday to Sacramento attorney Mark Merin asking for a list of eyewitnesses to the Jan. 25 shooting death of Parminder Singh Shergill.

“I wrote the letter because we want a full picture of what happened that day,” Helms said. “Investigations into officer-involved shootings often take many months, but our efforts are hindered if there are known witnesses who are not coming forward.”

    why havent they interviewed witnessess that were at the park and at nearby homes already, give me a break, lodi police did you really need to shoot him 14 times, he was only holding a knife that I believe he didnt put down but didnt lunge towards them, and why not just taze him it wasnt necessary to shoot him, and I believe they know this so they are trying to say he lunged after them How close were they standing? come on lodi police department be honest and stop your cover up, they screwed up and everyone knows it

    how is it that they go two months in an investigation without statements and names of witnesses and claim the are doing an investigation? isn't that one of the first steps into an investigation cause they didn't waste any time interviewing the family after the murder. Are the witnesses going to be different than the ones interviewed by Merin? Are they even doing an investigation? It has all the smells of corruption and so on. They should already have this the first week ! If this isn't playing jokes with peoples life's than I don't know what is. Cover up
