Florida Standoff Suspect Dies After Killing Two Cops, Wounding Marshal


It was the latest in a rash of shootings of police officers in recent days and the second time that police were shot in Florida while serving arrest warrants.

Two police officers, a man and a woman, were shot and killed last week in Miami, Fla., while serving an arrest warrant on a man wanted for murder.

An officer in Lincoln City, Ore., was critically wounded late Sunday night when he pulled over a car for speeding. A manhunt is underway after a brief highway chase disabled the suspect's car. The driver ran into a wooded area and remains at large.

In Detroit on Sunday, four officers were wounded when a gunman barged into a precinct stationhouse and opened fire. He was shot dead. Police said today that the gunman was a relative of a man who was about to be sentenced in a double homicide.

Three Officers Shot in St. Petersburg

Two more cops were shot and wounded in a Port Orchard, Wash., Walmart parking lot Sunday before a female officer arrived on the scene and killed the shooter.

Also Sunday, an Indianapolis cop was shot and critically wounded when trying to apprehend a robbery suspect with a lengthy rap sheet.
