    Indiana Police Officer Fatally Gunned Down...

    Indiana Police Officer Fatally Shot
    May 5, 2018 - Terre Haute Police Officer Rob Pitts was fatally wounded after officers were fired upon from a second-story window at an apartment complex Friday evening.
    Terre Haute Police Officer Rob Pitts has been identified as the law enforcement officer killed Friday evening in Terre Haute. Pitts was a 16-year veteran of the department, according to THPD Public Information Officer Ryan Adamson. "Rob is deeply missed, but we are grateful for the time we had with him. Thank you for your continued prayers," Adamson said in a news release. For those wanting to pay their respects, police will be moving Officer Pitts from Regional Hospital to DeBaun Funeral home at 1 p.m. The route will be southbound on Seventh Street to westbound Springhill road.

    Local churches have also arranged a prayer vigil at 6 p.m. today at the Vigo County Courthouse. Officer Pitts and three others were working on a homicide investigation that began earlier in the day on South 18th Street in Terre Haute. They had developed information on a suspect in that killing and were approaching an apartment in The Garden Quarter, an apartment complex along Jessica Drive south of Terre Haute.


    Officer Rob Pitts

    As they approached the apartment on Linwood Street just after 6:30 p.m., the officers were fired upon from a second-story window almost immediately and they returned fire, police said. Pitts, though rushed from the site, succumbed to his wounds at Terre Haute Regional Hospital. After the shooting, police engaged in a standoff with the barricaded suspect, who has not been named, that lasted until just before 9:20 p.m.

    The standoff came to an end when Terre Haute police special response team officers made entry into the apartment through a second-floor window by way of a ladder. Upon finding the man, police did call for a medic. Radio traffic at first seemed to indicate the suspect might be alive, but police later announced he had died. Police said he succumbed to wounds suffered in the initial exchange of gunfire.

    Two Ohio Police Officers Killed by Shots to Head, Torso...

    Autopsies: Ohio Police Officers Killed by Shots to Head, Torso
    May 14, 2018 - Westerville Officer Eric Joering was killed Feb. 10 when he was shot three times, once in the forehead, while fellow Officer Anthony Morelli died after being shot in the chest as they responded to a possible domestic violence call.
    Those are the findings of autopsies performed by the Franklin County Coroner's office on both officers. Quentin Lamar Smith, 30, has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder in the case for shooting both officers to death as they responded to Smith's townhouse just before noon on the 300 block of Cross Wind Drive. Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said Thursday the autopsies support his office's theory about what took place that day. O'Brien is seeking the death penalty against Smith, who was wounded but recovered. "Officer Joering was the first one to the door, and the shot to his head indicates what happened," O'Brien said shortly after the official autopsies were released Thursday. "He was shot at point-blank range. We believe it instantly caused his death," the prosecutor said.


    Officer Anthony Morelli, left, and Officer Eric Joering

    The fatal shot to Joering was in the forehead and exited from the back of the left side of his neck. The autopsy showed Joering, 39, also was shot in the left arm and shoulder and the right forearm. He died at the scene. Morelli, 54, who was right behind Joering as the officers responded, was shot in the left chest, with the bullet traveling from left to right. The bullet penetrated the heart and both lungs. Morelli was transported but later died at Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center. Westerville police earlier reported both officers were wearing body armor. Both autopsies determined the deaths were caused by homicide. Smith was shot "four or five times" by Morelli before the officer went down, O'Brien said.

    The officers went to the home after a 911 hangup at the residence where police previously responded to domestic disturbance calls. When they arrived, police said, Smith's wife told them Smith assaulted her and had a gun. In Ohio, conviction for purposefully killing one or more police officers is a crime punishable by death.

    Unhappy

    It's like open season on cops...

    Mass. police officer shot and killed; 3 cops hurt in Mo.
    July 15, 2018 -- A police officer and a bystander were shot and killed in Massachusetts as authorities pursued a vandalism and erratic driving suspect Sunday

    Authorities said Michael Chesna, 42, was fatally shot while attempting to arrest a suspect, identified as 20-year-old Emanuel Lopes around 7:30 a.m. Chesna was pursing Lopes with his gun drawn when Lopes struck him with a rock, took the officer's gun and shot him multiple times, according to authorities. Chesna was taken to South Shore Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Additional officers continued to pursue Lopes through the neighborhood as he fired Chesna's gun again and killed an elderly woman in her home.


    Officers eventually shot Lopes in the leg and he is expected to survive. He will be arraigned Monday on two counts of murder. Also Sunday, police in Missouri shot and killed a man suspected of shooting three police officers and was a person of interest in the death of a University of Missouri-Kansas City student. Two of the officers were shot while working undercover to search for the murder suspect at the Sky-Vu Motel at 12:15 p.m., Kansas City police spokesman Sgt. Jacob Becchina said.


    Both officers were rushed to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The shooting suspect fled the area with another person, who was found with the vehicle shortly afterward and arrested. Officers were then called to the area of 30th and Topping Avenue where they exchanged gunfire with the suspect. The suspect was killed and a third officer was injured by gunfire and taken to a hospital after the exchange. The officer's condition wasn't immediately known.

    Hawaii Officer Fatally Shot...



    Hawaii Officer Fatally Shot; Suspect Sought
    July 18, 2018 - A manhunt is underway for a suspect in the slaying of Hawaii Police Officer Bronson K. Kaliloa
    A manhunt is underway for a 33-year-old man in connection with a fatal shooting of a Hawaii island police officer in Mountain View. Officer Bronson K. Kaliloa was gunned down allegedly by the suspect identified as Justin Joshua Waiki. At about 9:47 p.m. Tuesday, police conducted a traffic stop on Highway 11 in the area of Kukui Camp Road on a vehicle with a Hawaii license plate ZGG 879 operated by Waiki whose last known address is listed as Las Vegas. He was wanted on an outstanding no-bail warrant. When officers approached the vehicle, police said Waiki exited the driver’s seat and fired multiple shots with what is believed to be a handgun, striking Kaliloa in the neck and leg. Other responding officers immediately returned fire, but Waiki fled on foot into nearby brush.


    Highway 11 between Ala Loop and Kulani Road is closed due to the active investigation. Police are focusing their search of Waiki in the area of Kukui Camp Road. Medics transported Kaliloa to Hilo Medical Center and was pronounced dead at 12:45 a.m. today, according to a news release by the Hawaii Police Department. Kaliloa is a 10-year veteran of the police department and is survived by his wife and three children. During his career, he had been recognized as “Officer of the Month” twice by the Aloha Exchange Club of East Hawaii. In October 2012, the organization honored Kaliloa for his investigative skills where he solved a July burglary case. On July 14, he had been assigned to a report of a break-in at a residence in the Nanawale Estates Subdivision.



    Officer Bronson K. Kaliloa



    Earlier, at a briefing at the start of his shift, Kaliloa learned a suspect of a string of burglaries in Puna had been arrested for multiple traffic offenses following a crash. When police arrived at the Nanawale home, Kaliloa noticed similarities in the Puna burglary cases involving the man arrested for the traffic violations. Kaliloa conducted an investigation and obtained a search warrant of the suspect’s vehicle. Police recovered several items inside the car belonging to the Nanawale burglary victims. In April 2014, the Aloha Exchange Club honored him as “Officer of the Month” for the second time for his investigative skills where he helped nab a dangerous convicted felon in the Maku’u Hawaiian Homes subdivision who was armed with a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun.


    Waiki is described as 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 145 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and dark-colored jacket. The public is advised not to approach him as he is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call police at 935-3311 or CrimeStoppers at 961-8300.

    Hawaii Cop-Killer Suspect Dead; Officer Wounded in Shootout...


    Suspect Hawaii Cop-Killer Dead; Officer Wounded in Shootout
    July 23, 2018 - An intensive four-day manhunt for the suspect who gunned down a Hawaii island police officer ended Friday in a shootout at South Point that left the suspect dead and two others, including a second police officer, wounded.
    Acting on a tip regarding the whereabouts of Justin Waiki, the man believed to have killed officer Bronson K. Kaliloa during a traffic stop in Mountain View on Tuesday, police stopped and searched a sport utility vehicle at a checkpoint in the South Point area of the Kau district around 2:45 p.m., according to Hawaii Police Department Chief Paul Ferreira. Waiki allegedly opened fire on the officers, wounding a sergeant assigned to the department’s special response team. “The other officers at the scene returned fire immediately, resulting in the death of Waiki,” Ferreira said in a prepared statement.


    The wounded officer, a 12-year veteran of the department, was transported in stable condition to Hilo Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his upper right torso, right arm and right hand. A woman who was reportedly hiding in the SUV also sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to Hilo Medical Center. Her condition was not released. Ferreira said three other people were arrested at the scene on suspicion of first-degree hindering prosecution. “Once again, the men and women of the Hawaii Police Department rose to the occasion in keeping our community safe,” Ferreira said. “You can sleep well tonight knowing that the search is over for the individual Justin Waiki who took the life of officer Bronson Kaliloa days ago.” Ferreira thanked HPD personnel as well as federal, state and local law enforcement partners for their work in apprehending Waiki.


    An intensive four-day manhunt for the suspect who gunned down a Hawaii island police officer ended Friday in a shootout at South Point that left the suspect dead and two others, including a second police officer, wounded.


    Friday’s fatal shootout was the culmination of an increasingly tense week for Hawaii island residents, one that began when Waiki, a 33-year-old repeat felon wanted on an outstanding warrant for failing to meet his bail conditions, was stopped on Highway 11 near Kukui Camp Road in Mountain View. According to police, Waiki exited the driver’s seat and opened fire with a handgun as officers approached, striking Kaliloa in the neck and leg. Two other officers returned fire, but Waiki was able to escape on foot into the nearby brush. Kaliloa was transported to Hilo Medical Center, where he died hours later following emergency surgery. A decorated officer twice honored as officer of the month by the Aloha Exchange Club, Kaliloa is the first Hawaii Police Department officer shot and killed in the line of duty. He is survived by his wife, two sons, a daughter and his parents.


    The search for Waiki intensified over the ensuing days as more than 20 HPD officers and federal agents were assigned to a special task force to find him. The U.S. Marshals Service; the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; and the Federal Bureau of Investigation each pledged $10,000 for information leading to Waiki’s capture. Hawaii Island CrimeStoppers offered an additional $2,000 reward. Police believed they were closing in on Waiki late Thursday afternoon when they received a tip at about 4:58 p.m. that he might be inside a pickup truck in a parking lot on Henry Street in Kailua-Kona. According to HPD Maj. Sam Thomas, officers spotted a pickup truck near Kahaluu Beach in Kailua-Kona matching the description of the vehicle around 5:19 p.m.


    They approached the truck and observed a man in the driver’s seat and a woman in the passenger’s seat. Police ordered them to exit the vehicle, but the driver allegedly sped toward the officers. Thomas said an officer fired three gunshots at the pickup truck. The vehicle was traveling westbound on Napoopoo Road when the driver steered toward another officer, who then fired 10 rounds at the suspects. Thomas said the suspects, later identified as Harvey Damo Jr. and Shevylyn Klaus, both 25, continued on and eventually abandoned the truck in a coffee field in Honaunau before escaping on foot. Officers scoured the area and eventually located the two Hilo residents. Damo and Klaus were arrested on suspicion of second-degree theft involving a Toyota pickup truck. Damo was treated at Kona Community Hospital for a minor gunshot wound and later released into police custody.


    The officers involved in both shootings Thursday and Friday were placed on administrative leave in keeping with standard procedures for officer-involved shootings. HPD spokesman Alan Richmond said police are investigating whether Damo and Klaus are connected to Waiki. “Word is they somehow had contact with him or were associated in some way,” he said. Lt. Sherry Bird of the HPD’s Criminal Investigation Section added, “We’re still working to confirm if (Waiki) was or wasn’t there. I don’t want to call it a case of mistaken identity. The information that was given to us is what we had to work with at the time.”


    Lengthy record


    Waiki had a criminal record of 37 arrests and 16 convictions, three of which involved felony promotion of a dangerous drug, forgery and ownership or possession of a prohibited firearm. In November authorities extradited Waiki to Hawaii island from Las Vegas for violating conditions of his probation. According to court records, 3rd Circuit Judge Glenn Hara sentenced him to a year in prison for third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. Waiki also was sentenced to 18 months for the firearm conviction. The prison terms were to run concurrently with credit for time served. Hara also ordered Waiki to four years of probation.


    In September 2016 Hara revoked Waiki’s probation after he failed to report to and meet with his probation officer in March and June of that year. According to his probation terms, he was prohibited from leaving Hawaii island unless he obtained permission from his probation officer or the court. At the November hearing Circuit Judge Henry Nakamoto set Waiki’s bail at $7,000 and ordered him to appear in court in March. Waiki was released after posting bail. In April a bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to make his scheduled court appearance.
