    The 41-year-old policeman was shot after he and his 30-year-old female colleague came across the two men with the motorbike in a car park in Augsburg at around 3 am on Friday.

    The police officers initially wanted to perform a routine traffic check on the two men – and gave chase when the men jumped on the Honda CB500 bike and sped off into the woods.

    At one point the bike slipped and the men fell off. When the police officers caught up with them, one of them fired with a large-calibre weapon from about ten metres away, hitting the policeman.

    The female police officer fired several shots in return but it seems did not hit either of the two men, who fled on foot into the woods, leaving the motorbike behind.

    Although the police officer was wearing a bullet-proof vest, he died at the scene, having been hit in the head or throat. He left a wife and two sons aged 13 and 17, the police said.

    His colleague suffered a bullet graze injury on her hip and serious shock. She is helping with the hunt for his killers as best she can.

    The murder of any LEO is disturbing. I hope the hunt for the BGs comes to a satisfactory ending.

    RIP and condolences to his family.

    If fellow officers do their job right, you may never hear about the bad guys again.


    RIP

    That is truly awful news, Horror. :crying:

    May the German state police find and kill/capture the murderers and I sincerely hope the police department takes very good care of the surviving family members for the rest of their lives.

    Be better than the cush deal they would get in my jurisdiction. Apparently pleading guilty means you get probation and no prison time...ever.

    I hope he rots in hell.

    And RIP brother. I have shed too many tears this year, the loss of another brother is too much for me right now.
