Whittier, CA – Twenty-five members of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) recruiting class were run over by a 22-year-old driver in an SUV on the wrong side of the roadway early on Wednesday morning.
The crash occurred at about 6:30 a.m. on Nov. 16 while 75 recruits from the Sheriff’s Training Academy and Regional Services (STARS) Center were running down the street in a four-column formation, KNBC reported.
Authorities said the recruits were running in four columns with eight road guards who were all wearing reflective high-visibility vests running on the outside edges of their group.
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)
