    Another one not too far from me. Multiple agencies searching for 16-year old after Harnett County deputy is shot in face
    Authorities said a deputy was shot in the face and chest while conducting an investigation on a path in a wooded area near H.M. Cagle Drive.

    They just got the suspect, 16-year-old Hispanic man

    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.
