Ah ah, thats where they were all rushing to on my way home from work.

Still amazed at the number of drivers that do not move over for police vehicles.

Not Mine... I wouldn't buy squat from him...

 

Update On Officer...

He was shot in the hand and shoulder...

There were 3 suspects...

They caught two and one is on the run...

The one they had cornered had to go to the hospital after they got him out of the building...

News said he had been shot multiple times by multiple Officers and is in Critical Condition...

 

Guess some of these idiots don't realize our gang is bigger than their gang... LOL

I apologize if I offend anyone but WOW!!

 

You would think as part of training they  could teach the soon to be officers a little better AIM. Again in my opinion if someone wants to shot at a LEO they should be prepared to be taken out. It only takes ONE shot placed proper to end it.

 

I think its pretty silly to wound the one doing the shooting only to take them into custody, so you can ask them why they did it. Then if they happen to go to jail for a short time, we PAY for them to live.

 

I feel for the officer and his family. I realize they know the risk right from the get go but its really sad to see how gun fire really goes on from the criminals side of things.

Under attack you can be the best aim and freeze. We had a LEO  a few day's ago in my home town that was backed over on a motorcycle and landed a shot on the subject enough to get the blood hounds on his butt and stick him in the cross bars, he was lucky or well trained. I would like to think he was a well conditioned officer. Practice makes perfect!

Officer Shot, Suspect Dies In KCK Shootout

A Kansas City, Kan., police officer was shot in the hand and a suspect died Friday morning after a shootout inside a store Thursday evening.

 

Police said officers saw subjects believed to be involved in a home break-in on Wednesday at 13th Street and Central Avenue. Two people surrendered. Another man fled the scene and walked right past Richard Colston into the business where he works.

 

Colston works at Glenn's Pre-Owned Appliances and said the man involved in the shootout walked past him with a gun in hand. Soon, he said what he thought was about to be a robbery turned into something far worse.

 

"I've never seen nothing like this in my life," Colston said. "He had a gun in his right hand and something else in his left hand. And he looked up at me and he just smiled, laughed.

 

" He said the man walked to the back door, soon followed by four officers.

 

"I heard them tell him to surrender and then they asked him to drop his weapon, then I heard an 'F you,'" the witness said. "It was like four shots, hesitation two minutes apart, then all of a sudden they just unloaded.

 

"Police said the suspect fired at them, hitting the officer in the arm and hand, and multiple officers returned fire.

 

Colston says he and his co-worker watched the officers back out with guns drawn, and ended up standing right alongside the injured officer.

 

"He was shot in the hand, in his ring finger. And he asked the other officer who was helping him to pull his wedding band off. He was going to lose his finger, so he wanted his wedding band taken off. But he was bleeding real bad from the hand.

 

"Police said even after the shooting, the man barricaded himself inside for around 10 minutes or more before he came out as officers were setting up for a standoff.

 

The officer, a seven-year veteran with the department, has been released from the hospital.The suspect who died had a resident alien card in his pocket, police said.
