SAN FRANCISCO - The father of a suspect in the fatal shooting of two California police officers says his son was a ticking time bomb who had contempt for police and the justice system.
Ronald Goulet told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his son, 35-year-old Jeremy Goulet, had numerous run-ins with the law and swore he would never go back to jail.
But the elder Goulet said he never thought his son would turn to such violence.
Authorities say Jeremy Goulet shot and killed Sgt. Loran Butch Baker and Detective Elizabeth Butler on Tuesday afternoon.
The detectives wanted to question Jeremy Goulet regarding a report of inappropriate sexual advances with a co-worker.
