Too Close to Home

10 Feb

This morning, there was a shooting at the Panera across the street from the Y we use.

Panera staff had called 911 because there was a patron who had been there most of the morning, mumbling to himself, and just acting “off”. One family said they had moved to another section because he made them uneasy.

When the officer arrived, the man pulled a gun from his pocket and shot him in the head, then ran out of the building and across the street. Other officers arrived, and based on the descriptions given them, chased the man into the parking lot of an apartment complex about a half-mile away.

The man got into a car, and shots were exchanged. A second deputy was injured, and the man was killed.

No word on who any of the people were, or the condition of the more seriously wounded officer.

Film at eleven.

    So very sorry to hear that both officers succumbed to their injuries.

    I posted a link to the Bel Air Patch. Such a shame.
