Video: Second eyewitness details shooting death of LaVoy Finicum, says he never had gun in jacket pocket

fact7In a video posted to YouTube Sunday, Shawna Cox, one of the five individuals in the vehicle driven by LaVoy Finicum, recalls her account of what happened during the fateful encounter with FBI and officers of the Oregon State Police.

The account she provides would seem to counter the official FBI story while corroborating the account given by Victoria Sharpe.

A post at Free Capitalist reported:

Today, Shawna Cox, who was also a passenger in Mr. Finicum’s truck provided a second eyewitness account of the events, including her efforts to try and help protect Ms. Sharp (and Ryan Bundy who was also a passenger) during “a hailstorm” of gunfire.   Describing desperate pleas, screams, and constant prayer, Ms. Cox recounted her recollection of a barrage of “hundreds” of rounds of ammunition being fired into the white pickup truck by law enforcement agents – before, during and after Mr. Finicum’s death.   The interview (included below) took place after Ms. Cox contacted me via text message, and in a subsequent telephone interview relayed her personal account of the events, including what she witnessed, what she heard and her first-hand recollection of how events were set-up by a suspected government informant.

Cox also said that based on her observation, the FBI and OSP wanted all of the passengers dead.  She is now free on pre-trial release but said “the truth must get out.”

One of the statements she made is that Finicum never had a 9 mm pistol in his jacket, despite what officers later said.

Here’s her recollection of the incident:
