...has been wounded in the line of duty, but returned fire and killed the perp? The LEO wasn't seriously hurt ( less than an inch of difference in shot placement though and... ) I should add that I don't live in a big metro area where this is an everyday occurrence...I honestly can't remember the last time we had a police shooting around here. I don't even know the LEO involved personally, I just met him once while he was working security at a school fundraiser a while back. Still, I felt the need to call the office, or send a card or something - and I knew it was the right thing to do when I heard that he was having a hard time coping with the stress of the event. FWIW, all I have is media to go by but it looks to be a textbook case of a justified shoot. Still, putting someone in the ground isn't the sort of thing most people can just shrug off the same as bumping into someone and making them spill their coffee. And it was a "domestic disturbabce" call and a relative of the perp was there during the shooting... So yeah, totally clueless here, ideas appreciated.
