“Firefighter says he waved at police and was handcuffed and threatened.

“Police in North Carolina shot and killed a man running toward them Saturday morning — but he may have just been looking for help after a car wreck.

“Watching the interview, I couldn’t help but reflect on Alexis, who also had the kind of history — including an episode of hearing voices just five weeks earlier — that should have kept him from getting a gun.

Adam Lanza used a gun from the same company in the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn.
