With the dust beginning to settle, victory parties continuing to rage across India and Australian mobs howling down Tim Paine and the domestic team, here’s a quick A to Z guide of what just happened.

Gill claimed that a suspect had shot him in his body camera, destroying it, but now Gill is suspected of making the entire story up.

Gill claimed that on the night of January 31, 2020, he pulled over to urinate near the Uvas Reservoir, a forested hiking and fishing area south of San Jose. Then, he claimed, an attacker pulled up in a vehicle with its headlights off and fired four shots, three of which hit Gill's SUV and one of which hit him in the body camera and body armor upon his chest, according to The Mercury News.

Mysterious, 20-million-year-old tunnels in the ancient ocean floor came from 6-foot-long carnivorous worms, a study found

  Mysterious, 20-million-year-old tunnels in the ancient ocean floor came from 6-foot-long carnivorous worms, a study found Bobbit worms explode out of tunnels on the ocean floor to ambush prey. According to a new study, these worms had 6-foot-long carnivorous ancestors that burrowed under the Pacific Ocean. Researchers found 20-million-year-old tunnels made by these prehistoric worms in Taiwan. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Scientists in Taiwan noticed odd, L-shaped burrows in a set of rocks eight years ago. Since the rocks once sat on the Pacific Ocean floor, they thought the tunnels had been made by shrimp, or perhaps octopuses.

Gill said he fired two shots in return and later fell down an embankment, though he sustained no injuries. He later called in the supposed attack to his fellow officers through his police radio.

Although Gill has been a deputy since 2016, his fellow police officers since have accused him of making the entire story up. He was placed on administrative leave as investigators looked into his story. He has since been charged with felony vandalism and a misdemeanor charge of filing a false police report. He was placed in San Jose's Main Jail.

"This case is bewildering and deeply disappointing. Deputy Gill's actions abused the trust of his fellow officers and diverted public safety resources away from protecting the community to investigate a made-up crime," District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a statement.

Hong Kong turns to 'ambush lockdowns' to fight virus

  Hong Kong turns to 'ambush lockdowns' to fight virus Hong Kong turns to 'ambush lockdowns' to fight virusPolice cordoned off a row of densely packed tenement buildings in the Yau Ma Tei area overnight on Tuesday through to Wednesday morning to conduct mandatory tests.

At the time, investigators wondered whether the supposed ambush might be a possible hate crime considering that Gill is a practicing Sikh who wears a traditional headdress, according to KPIX-TV.

However, investigators reportedly found "forensic inconsistencies and no definitive evidence" to support Gill's story. A ballistics investigation that said his vehicle's damage didn't match his report. Investigators also found it suspicious that a shot from a passing vehicle happened to hit him square in his chest and body cam.

The criminal complaint against Gill states that he "did maliciously damage and destroy property, specifically, a body-worn camera and a Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office patrol vehicle."

No motive has been identified and it's unclear whether Gill's body camera contained any recovered footage before it was destroyed. Newsweek contacted the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office for comment.

"If the allegations hold true, Deputy Gill's actions are not representative of the upstanding men and women of the Sheriff's Office, who risk their lives every day to serve and protect our community with honesty and integrity," Sheriff Laurie Smith said in a statement.
