    This is all over the television news down here this morning. Reports are sketchy, but they just reported that two officers were transported and there's a suspect on the loose.

    Police: 2 Officers, Marshal Wounded in Florida Shooting


    Published January 24, 2011
    | Associated Press

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Authorities say a U.S. Marshal and two police officers have been seriously wounded in a shooting in Florida.
    St. Petersburg Police spokesman Michael Puetz says the marshal and officers had come to the suspect's house to arrest him Monday morning. He says the suspect was hiding in the attic and opened fire on the officers. He says the suspect is still barricaded inside the home.
    Police had to punch a hole in the wall to rescue one of the officers. All were taken to a hospital. Puetz says the police officers are in critical condition, while the marshal is in stable condition.
    The shooting comes four days after two Miami-Dade County detectives were killed by a murder suspect they were trying to arrest. That suspect was killed by another officer.

    Officers gather near the scene of this morning's shooting.
    Two St. Petersburg police officers were shot and killed this morning as they attempted to serve a warrant at a St. Petersburg home with a U.S. Marshal. The warrant was likely for sex offender Hydra Lacy Jr. (inset), according to records, but authorities have not yet released the suspect's name or the names of the officers killed.

    So....set the house on fire. This sounds similar to the Beck shooting in CA, barricaded suspect shot multiple officers from a 2nd story position. RIP officers, and don't let this guy make it out of the house alive.

    Agree, we are becoming an edangered species. At least we are taking multiple shitbags down along the way.

    They had video of the house after the recovery of the suspect's body here in local TV. They knocked the whole house down. They don't fuck around down here.
