hmfr[1]A man who had previously threatened law enforcement with violence apparently set up a trap for them by setting his home in Tallahassee, Fla., on fire. He hid outside the house, and after an officer pulled up, shot him from behind as he approached the house. [2]

According to the Daily Mail,

The gunman then picked up the deputy’s gun, walked down the street and used it to shoot a second deputy before he was fatally shot by other law enforcement officers, Lt. James McQuaig of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office said.

The wounded deputy credits his vest for saving his life and his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

What if this crime had taken place in the UK, where the majority of law enforcement officers carry bobby sticks, not guns? More would have been killed by this crazed killer. As demented as this crime was, at least some of the brave law enforcement officers were able to stop him before he could kill and injure more.
