Swamsniper - this might be a common occurrence in the US, but in the UK it is front page news - on TV they even broke into regular programming with news flashes. TommyT is correct that it is not something you see very often. A cop was murdered by an ex - US Marine a couple of years ago, and when the BG was sentenced was told he would NEVER come out of prison. Gun crime is spreading rapidly in the UK, and there seems to be nothing to be done to stop it; when the hand gun ban came into force eight years ago, the Police officer who confiscated my G17 and equipment said that from now on, only the bad guys would be armed - and how prophetic that was!
