American professional stock car racing driver Robert East recently lost his life in an unfortunate altercation. According to reports in the media and police, a drifter fatally stabbed NASCAR racer Bobby East this week following a bloody confrontation at a California service station. Now, his murderer got killed by the police in a wild shoot-out.
Two days after East was stabbed, a SWAT team carried out a search warrant at an apartment in the Anaheim region. Officers were told Millsap might be hiding out there. According to law enforcement sources who spoke to TMZ, an officer-involved incident happened during the raid, and Millsap was reportedly shot and killed.
A SWAT team executed a search warrant at an Anaheim-area apartment Friday — two days after East was stabbed — where officers were informed Millsap may be holed up. During the raid, an officer-involved shooting occurred … we’re told Millsap was shot and killed on the scene as the police were trying to arrest him.
All this happened while the police were attempting to capture him. The shooting is being looked into by the Orange County DA. While Millsap was filling up with gas, it is said that East and the racecar driver got into an argument. Uncertain of what started the altercation, Millsap is accused of stabbing East in the chest with a sharp instrument.
Police were rushed to the scene and are said to have saved East’s life before paramedics arrived. East was then taken to a nearby hospital and later declared dead. East won the USAC Silver Crown Championships in 2012 and 2013 and was a three-time U.S. Auto Club champion. RIP.
