I answered no to the first question because my "knowledge" is based on news reports. In that sense, I don't consider that I "know" what happened.

I had the same thought, but then decided that I did know that there was a police stop which resulted in a shooting and death of one of the civilians involved in the stop. That is what happened; the parts of the reporting that are speculation I've labeled as such in my mind.
