    Domestic Violence calls and Car stops are some off the most dangerous things LEOs have to handle. Domestic calls are particulary dangerous because both sides in the argument are angry/emotional so the LEO/s is entering a highly charged situation with irrational behaviour that can become volent in an instant . The cop is right in the middle and becomes the target of rage. God protect them.

    The article...

    (CNN) -- Three police officers were shot in Pittsburgh on Saturday, as they responded to a domestic call, Allegheny County police said.

    A gunman is apparently holed up inside a home in the Stanton Heights neighborhood of the western Pennsylvania city.

    The conditions of the officers were not known.

    Police couldn't say whether the officers struck were from the city, the county or other departments. City, county and state police officers were at the scene.

    CNN affiliate WTAE reported that as many as 80 shots have been fired between people in the house and officers.

    80 shots?

    UPdate

    They are now saying there are reports of 5 officers shot, 3 dead.
    The shooter 'may' have used an AK47. (Some dufus reporter stating it is an 'automatic' weapon.)

    One neighbor is saying he is 22, and recently discharged from the military.

    Just gets sadder and more disgusting...

    Pittsburgh Police: 3 Officers Killed in Shooting and Standoff

    Pittsburgh Police: 3 Officers Killed in Shooting and Standoff

    PITTSBURGH — A man opened fire on officers responding to a domestic disturbance call Saturday morning, killing three of them, before barricading himself in the home, a police official said.

    Three officers were killed, said a police official at the scene who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

    At least five officers were wounded, police spokeswoman Diane Richard said. It's not clear if that included the slain officers.

    The man who fired at the officers was arrested after a several-hour standoff. One witness reported hearing hundreds of shots.

    Edward Perkovic, a 22-year-old who said he was the gunman's best friend, said he got a call at work from him in which he said, "Eddie, I am going to die today. ... Tell your family I love them and I love you."

    "I heard gunshots and he hung up," Perkovic said.

    The officers were called to the home in the Stanton Heights neighborhood at about 7 a.m., Richard said.

    Tom Moffitt, 51, a city firefighter who lives two blocks away, said he heard about the shooting on his scanner and came to the scene, where he heard "hundreds, just hundreds of shots. And not just once — several times."

    Rob Gift, 45, who lives a block away, said he heard rapid gunfire as he was letting his dog out.

    He said the neighborhood of well-kept single-family houses and manicured lawns is home to many police officers, firefighters, paramedics and other city workers.

    "It's just a very quiet neighborhood," Gift said.

    Not much additional information.

    Thanks QK.

    It sucks to be reading and thinking about this as I am getting ready for my shift this afternoon. I guess a dose of reality never hurt anyone.
