Terrance Roberts: Police report says anti-gang activist shot man, yelled "F*ck that nigga"

As we reported yesterday, Terrance Roberts, a former gang leader who'd transformed himself into an inspirational anti-gang activist, was arrested for a shooting at a Friday unity rally he'd planned.

We've now obtained the probable cause statement in the case (see it below), and in it, Roberts claims he acted in self-defense against "that nigga," Hasan "Munch" Jones, 22. However, witnesses maintain Roberts kept putting bullets into Jones even after he'd hit the ground.
