Situation Report # SSU 007/141125

At 2115 hours on Thursday the 18 of July 2011 the police control center in Mountain City received a phone call reporting shots fired in Bird’s Restaurant at 212 Oak Road. A patrol unit was sent to the restaurant and arrived at 2124 hours.  The restaurant owner directed them to a back room of the restaurant, where they found a body of a male person lying on the floor. Beside the body was a table covered with playing cards, appearing that there had been a game of cards in progress at the time of the shooting.   A check of the body revealed that he had received three gunshot wounds to the body and ambulance personnel declared him dead at the scene. The owner stated that the victim was playing poker in the back room, along with the owner, the dead man, the suspect and two other men. He identified the dead man as Goran Brown, who had been having a lucky day at cards, winning several thousand Euros until he became involved in an argument with one of the other players, only know by his first name, Dan.  Dan accused Goran of being a cheat; Goran hit Dan several times with his fists. Suddenly Dan pulled out a pistol and shot Goran and then ran away. Dan was described as about 20 years old, 1.75 meters tall, had short brown hair, dressed in blue jeans and a gray pullover shirt.

The owner of the restaurant was interviewed, who stated that Dan fired a gun, and then ran from the building. A further search of the room revealed two fresh bullet holes in the card table. These two bullets were recovered from the table for forensic examination. No empty cartridges were found at the scene; therefore it was suspected that the weapon used was a revolver. The restaurant owner remembered Dan talking about the old car he was driving, that it needed repairs, and that he lost a lot of money.

SUSPECT STATEMENT NARRATIVE
One 19 July 2011at 1100 hours a suspect wanted for the murder of Goran Brown turned himself in at the Mountain City Police Department.  Detectives conducted an interview of the suspect, who admitted to the killing of Mr. Brown at 2115 hours on Thursday the 18 of July 201.  He stated his full name was Dan Green, and he was born 15 March 1991.  At the time of the shooting, he was playing cards.  There were five players: the suspect, the restaurant owner named Martin Small, the victim named Goran Brown and two other men, Frederik Popovic and Stefan Lyon.  Dan told everyone he was playing with his rent money because he needed to try to win extra money to pay his rent and fix his car too. He said the muffler was so loud everyone could hear him every time he drove.  Goran had a very lucky day and won a lot of money but Dan lost 900 Euro, the amount of his rent.  Goran and Dan became involved in an argument because Goran won so much money.  Dan became angry, and accused Goran of being a cheat. Goran hit Dan several times with his fists. Suddenly Dan pulled out a pistol.  He fired five shots and Goran fell.  He said he only meant to scare Goran into giving him back his money, but then he shot him.  He said he ran out and got in his car, a green black Volvo, which he had parked next to a house beside the restaurant.  The muffler on his car made a loud noise as he started it up and he was afraid he would be stopped by police while he was driving, so he threw the gun outside the car window and drove away from the restaurant, heading toward North Street.  The gun was a Smith and Wesson .38 special revolver, Serial Number SW9876, belonging to his father, David Green.  He stated that he took the gun without his father’s knowledge.
