SALEM, Ore. — Salem police shot and killed a juvenile shooting suspect they were trying to arrest Wednesday evening and during an exchange of gunfire with the suspect, one officer was wounded, the Salem Police Department said.
The officer was taken to Salem Health and was expected to make a full recovery, police said.
On Wednesday, around 5 p.m., police said they were trying to arrest the shooting suspect, who they only identified as a juvenile male, in the 4900 block of Oak Park Drive NE. Officers had found him in a parked car and when they tried to contact him, police said he drew a gun. An exchange of gunfire occurred and the suspect died at the scene, police said.
The Salem Police Department identified the officers involved in the shooting as Brian Frazzini, Erick Hernandez, Ryan Morris, and Adam Waite.
The officers have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure for police shootings.
Several agencies are on scene investigating an officer-involved shooting along OH-48 in Warren County Tuesday evening.
According to early reports, Clearcreek Township officers were responding to a domestic call at local residence where the suspect was ramming his wife’s car with an ATV.
According to police, the suspect shot a responding officer and another officer returned fire, striking and killing the man.
It is unclear what initially led up to the shooting.
The officer was shot in the head and transported to Miami Valley Hospital near Dayton.
He is in critical but stable condition, police said.
“The suspect shot one of my officers, he’s in stable but critical condition in the ICU,” Clearcreek Township Police Chief John Terrill said. “The individual that shot my officer was shot by one of our other officers and killed. So BCI is here processing our scene, we’ll be doing that through the night. The officer was careflighted to the hospital.”
“He’s a cop’s cop. He’s been on the police force for six years, going on seven. He’s an Army veteran,” said Liam Hopkins, friend.
The incident began with an altercation between two groups in a bar early Saturday morning in Beverly. It spilled out on Western Avenue near Aldermen Matt O’Sheas office.
The alderman said Golden, who was off-duty, tried to break up the altercation. O’Shea said during the fight, Golden announced he was a Chicago police officer. Bullets then rang out. A neighbor’s Ring camera caught the gunshots.
“I believe he saved lives that night getting people away as this individual was spraying the crowd with gun fire… machine gun,” O’Shea said.
“All he’s done his whole life was selflessly give to others and care for others,” Hopkins said.
Friends, family and the community are now rallying around Golden.
“He’s got a group of us, an army, behind him,” Hopkins said.
Golden’s fiancee said it was a miracle he survived, especially after doctors told her the bullet lodged between his lungs and heart missed his valve one 1 millimeter. She said he is in good spirits as he recovers.
Some have been calling for more officers to patrol the area.(Editor’s note- Hey Chicago, you do know how defunding the police works right? You can’t add more cops if you are defunding your police department- smh)
Two men — one in Queens and one in Brooklyn — died after being shot by police Saturday evening, the NYPD said.
Police said the first incident occurred just after 6 p.m. at 205-17 116th Ave. in St. Albans.
According to NYPD Chief of Patrol Jeffrey Maddrey, a man who identified himself by name called 911 twice and made threats to multiple officials, including the governor and members of the police department.
Maddrey said members of the 113th Precinct listened in on the second call and responded with multiple units. According to Maddrey, when officers walked toward the house, a man emerged from the house, and confirmed his identity when one of the officers called him by name.
The man then immediately started cursing at the officers and refused to comply with commands from officers, Maddrey said. According to Maddrey, after a short verbal exchange, the man pulled out a gun and fired it at officers.
At least six officers returned fire, and the man was struck, according to Maddrey.
Maddrey said officers attempted life-saving measures on the man who was shot at the scene. However, the man ultimately died of his wounds at the hospital, according to Maddrey.
The FDNY said a total of 10 officers were also injured at the shooting. Nine officers were transfered to Northshore Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, while one refused medical attention. Maddrey said they were treated for conditions like tinnitus, trauma and high blood pressure.
According to Maddrey, about an hour and a half later, at around 7:30 p.m. in Downtown Brooklyn, officers withthe 88th Precinct’s public safety team stopped a gold Nissan that they observed committing traffic violations while traveling down Flatbush Avenue.
At some point, the officers asked the occupants of the vehicle to step out of the car, Maddrey said. At that point, according to Maddrey, the man in the front passenger side of the car left the vehicle and started running.
One of the officers from the 88th Precinct public safety team pursued the man on foot for a short time, Maddrey said. According to Maddrey, that pursuit stopped in the vicinity of Rockwell Place and Lafayette Avenue, when the man who fled the car pulled out a gun and started firing at the officer. The officer fired back and struck the man in the chest, Maddrey said.
So this thug, fleeing a cop, failing to comply, reaching into his pockets (could have been a gun,right?) to throw drugs away, fighting with the cop for the taser he correctly tried to use AND HIS GUN, gets killed and the officer is suspended? In the height of battle the officer had his gun in one hand and the taser in the other. He accidently fired both at the same time. An accident caused by this thug who chose to fight and resist. Remember one thing. When an unarmed perp decides to fight a police office, he is as good as armed because if the cop loses control of his gun he is dead. I hope this officer is not railroaded.
