Officer MURDERED – Shot 36 Times
(TargetLiberty.org) – Every day, cops put their lives on the line for civilians all across the country, even when they’re doing something as simple as pulling a car over for a traffic infraction. On July 31, an armed suspect allegedly emerged from his vehicle on such an occasion, shooting and killing Elwood Police Officer Noah Shahnavaz in Indiana.
Reports show authorities found 36 rounds while processing the scene, but due to the damage to the young man, it was unclear how many times the shots actually struck his body. His fellow officers and hospital personnel tried to save his life, but the damage was too severe.

The alleged perpetrator, Carl Roy Webb Boards II, fled the area, but police found him a short time later. A pursuit ensued, ultimately leading to his apprehension. Authorities charged the suspect with murder, resisting arrest, and illegally possessing a firearm.
According to Law & Crime, Board’s record shows this isn’t his first run-in with the law. In 2006, he fired at police during another routine stop, and courts released him on parole just under a year ago. It’s unclear how he obtained the rifle he used in Shahnavaz’s murder, the 9mm pistol authorities found upon his arrest, or the loaded magazines and clips recovered inside his home.
Do you think gun laws would have helped prevent this travesty?
