There is a guy that is posting random videos of the ongoing stand off to Facebook. HUNDREDS of rounds are being fired.

The wounded officers were outside the house but had not been removed because gunfire is continuing,
Just about to make a snarky comment about what good would all those army surplus vehicles the police have been "militarizing" themselves with....

Quote:
Just after 7 p.m., a fusillade of gunfire erupted, prompting the retreat of an armored personnel carrier.
When I noticed the APC was forced to retreat... What the hell? Thought those were resistant to small arms fire. I would have thought it'd be able to cover the recovery of the wounded officers anyway...

Holy crap, what's that guy got stashed in the house?

Prayers for all officers involved, especially the wounded ones, this could get ugly...

Hmm, Capital murder of a Meskin National? I guess if he was hooked in with the cartel, he'd have some serious firepower.

If this isn't over, may he step in front of a window and being taken out by a sniper whose aim is true.

Really hope the officers survive and they get the guy in the house without more officers being injured.

"As our officers were getting out of the car, the suspect ... opened up on our officers," Castaneda said. "One of my officers was shot in the arm. The other officer was shot in both legs and possibly a third time. He's in surgery right now. They're all doing fine.
Prayers for continued positive progress.

Oh I think we're going to see a lot more of this. Time to get real serious about how you go about doing business and responding to calls.

153 days left for me.

Prayers to the wounded! Hope the scumbag is dead!

Prayers for the Officers.

The RGV is only going to get worse and it'll work it's way north.

I had a relative who was the Hidalgo County Sheriff way back, when things were drastically different down there. It's unrecognizable from even just 20 years ago.

Prayers for the injured!

BTW we fitted our Bearcat with numerous small cameras so we could drive it when the windows all get shot up and you can't see out of it.

A weakness we surmised and made a tactical plan for.

if any are interested PM me it was easy to do.
