    Man shoots first responders in Minnesota, takes own life

    Crazy things happen even in small town Minnesota. Trying to save lives in a fire and getting ambushed.

    http://www.kare11.com/news/news_arti...79134&catid=14

    Both responders are out of the hospital. Reports are crediting the officer's vest with saving his life.

    I think this is a type of situation where anyone would be caught off guard until it is too late.

    Wow. Responding to a house fire, only to find out that a murderous perp was waiting in ambush before committing suicide himself?

    Mentally unstable or a drug problem...or both...crime and danger lurk everywhere, and no one is really safe.
    Glad the officer is O.K.
    Stay armed...stay very alert...stay safe!

    Not the first time this has happened. Or the second. I believe one was in Kansas City a couple years ago. Guy fired his house, then sniped fire and LEOs from inside. Another was in a NE city. There's more at http://www.emsnetwork.org/artman/pub...assaults.shtml
