A Johnstown man who survived a deadly shooting early Monday by three
Johnstown police officers said that he and his cousin, Elip Cheatham,
were trying to get another wounded cousin to a hospital and were not
attempting to run down police.
“If it wasn’t for God being on my side I wouldn’t be here,” Hayward
Gaines III said. Gaines did not escape the gunfire entirely and received
a wound to his right leg.
But it’s the loss of his 27-year-old cousin that has him the most upset.
