From an apartment doorway a man, later identified as Randleman, yelled at a group of men nearby.
Randleman told police someone named “Gary” stole from him and a fight ensued.
While talking with police Randleman cursed and kept yelling “these (expletive)ing (racial slur)s,” a police report said.
When he refused to calm down police arrested him. Randleman exploded.
“They should put two more of you in the ground,” he yelled at police according to a report. “Hey Sam, put another one in the grave … they gonna find another one in the dirt when it’s all said and done, put them all in the dirt.”
“That’s why Kevin did what he did, (expletive) them, dirty job someone got to do it,” he said according to a report.
After police took Randleman to the Erie County jail, other officers talked with a witness. The witness, who didn’t want to be identified, said Randleman pulled a knife on a younger man during an argument.
