It seems that shooting are becoming a way of life and no one seems to be able the tackle the root issue of what is causing this.

Update from another source:

"A traffic stop led to a gunbattle that killed an anti-gang police officer and seriously wounded another, authorities said Friday. A suspect was shot and taken into custody while authorities searched for others who may have been involved.

The slain officer, a husband and father of two children, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died early Friday, Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said. The other officer underwent surgery and was expected to survive. His wife is at the hospital.

The officers, both part of the department's gang suppression unit, made the traffic stop around 11 p.m. Thursday in San Diego's modest Southcrest area and were shot in the upper torso. They quickly called for emergency cover, and the critically injured officer was rushed to the hospital in a police vehicle.

The male suspect, who was captured in a ravine, was being treated Friday at a hospital. His condition was unknown."

My heart goes out to another fallen officer in the line of duty. I hope the other officer makes a full recovery.
