Santa Cruz mayor reconsiders shootout damage claim

The mayor of Santa Cruz thinks the city should take a second looking at paying for property damage stemming from the search for a heavily-armed cop killer.

Two officers died after being gunned down by Jeremy Goulet on February 26. The search for Goulet led to a small apartment building. Bullet holes riddled much of that complex after officers killed Goulet during a shootout.

The city council has already rejected the landlord's claim of more than $4,900 in damage.
