‘Is that a crime?’: Witness says man shot by police was rushing cousin to hospital

• .
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.
