    Bad: Alabama Deputy Killed

    Alabama deputy fatally shot, another wounded in deadly shootout | Fox News

    AIRHOPE, Ala. – An Alabama deputy sheriff was fatally shot and another deputy was critically wounded Friday during a confrontation with a man they were checking on, who was also killed, authorities said.

    The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office said the deputies were responding to a call at about 4 p.m.Friday expressing concern about the welfare of Michael Jansen of the Fairhope area, about 20 miles southeast of Mobile. Authorities said in a news release that deputies encountered Jansen at his mobile home and "were engaged in an officer involved shooting" when they were both shot.

    Sheriff officials told Al.com that the deputies were talking with the suspect at the scene when he 'produced a handgun and began to fire at the deputies.'

    Both deputies, who were struck by multiple gunshots, were transported to USA Medical Center in Mobile, where Deputy Scott Ward was pronounced dead. The second deputy, whose name had not been released early Saturday, was in critical condition.

    Ward was a U.S. Coast Guard reservist who had been deployed to Afghanistan about a year ago, Al.com reported. He was a 15 year veteran on the force and was a SWAT member and defensive tactics instructor, the report said.

    Authorities said Jansen, who was believed to be in his 50s, "was also shot during the exchange and he was pronounced dead at the scene."

    "Scott stood up ... and he did his job and in the course of the job he made the ultimate sacrifice," Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack told Al.com

    The county's Major Crimes Task Force was investigating the shooting.

    R.I.P. Warrior Scott Ward.

    May his family find comfort that he gave his life for the good of the State of Alabama, and that of our country.

    (glad the perp was dusted)

    Anytime, anywhere.... no call is routine. Godspeed and prayers for the family and brothers and sisters in the force.

    Glad this perp is no longer breathing.
