SUA: Extremiștii afro-americani au ucis din nou polițiști. San Diego: Un polițist a fost împușcat mortal și altul rănit în San Diego
Organizația polițiștilor "The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund", a emis miercuri un raport care arată că 67 de polițiști aflați la datorie, au fost uciși în acest an în Statele Unite, până în 20 iulie - o creștere de 8% față de aceeași perioadă a anului trecut, când 62 de ofițeri au fost uciși.
Un polițist a fost împușcat mortal și altul rănit joi în orașul american San Diego, pe coasta de sud a Californiei, în cursul unei opriri în trafic, suspectul fiind plasat în arest, au relatat media locale și departamentul de poliție pe rețelele sociale, informează agenția Reuters - preluată de Agerpres.
Membri ai diviziei de luptă împotriva criminalității organizate, cei doi polițiști au fost împușcați în timpul unei opriri în trafic în cartierul Southcrest, din sud-estul orașului San Diego, potrivit publicației San Diego Union Tribune.
Polițiștii au fost duși la spital după incident. Unul dintre ei care avea răni multiple a decedat, iar celălalt a fost supus unei intervenții chirurgicale vineri dimineața, a precizat publicația.
''Cu profundă tristețe, anunțăm moartea unuia dintre ofițerii noștri în cursul nopții'', afirmă departamentul de poliție pe Twitter. Poliția l-a plasat pe suspect în arest și este în căutarea unui alt suspect sau suspecți posibili, conform anunțului.
Incidentul survine după ce opt polițiști au fost împușcați mortal în ambuscade în Dallas și Baton Rouge în iulie, punând în stare de alertă maximă departamentele de poliție de pe cuprinsul SUA.
Police officer dead, another injured in Southcrest shooting
Suspect in custody, search underway for other possible suspects
SAN DIEGO — A traffic stop late Thursday night led to a shooting that killed a San Diego police officer and wounded a second officer and a suspect in Southcrest, where police searched for hours for other possible suspects.
The names and tenures of the male officers, both part of the department’s gang suppresion unit, were not released.
The slain officer suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at a hospital despite life-saving efforts, San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said early Friday. The wounded officer underwent surgery early Friday and was expected to survive.
The male suspect, who had been shot, was being treated at a hospital, Zimmerman said.
Police offered few details about how the shooting unfolded.
The two officers had pulled over a vehicle about 11 p.m. somewhere in the area of Acacia Grove Way and 38th Street. Immediately after, they called for emergency cover.
Other officers were in the area and arrived swiftly. They found the two officers suffering from gunshot wounds to the upper torso. The critically injured officer was rushed to a hospital in a police vehicle.
“Despite heroic efforts by officers on scene and heroic efforts by doctors to save his life, I’m heartbroken to report they were unable to save him, and he is deceased,” Zimmerman said outside Scripps Mercy Hospital, where the mood was tense and somber.
Outside the main entrance, some officers could be seen hugging one another. Others stood stoically, guarding the hospital doors. Zimmerman escorted several people into the hospital.
Zimmerman later said she had gone to the home of the slain officer and notified his wife, two children and extended family members who were at the home.
"It is extremely difficult, but something you have to do," Zimmerman said, joined by other department leaders. "There's nothing that prepares you to do that."
The wife of the critically injured officer was beside him at the hospital as he underwent surgery, Zimmerman said.
Other family members of the two officers had not yet been notified and their names were not released to the public.
There was no update on the condition of the suspect, who was found shortly after the shooting in a ravine near South 38th and Alpha streets.
Police, including officers from many other agencies, swarmed the area and searched for any other possible suspects with the aid of police dogs, a helicopter and a SWAT team, focusing on the Chollas Creek open area just south of Acacia Grove. Residents were asked to stay indoors.
The incident comes as police in Southern California and throughout the country are on high alert following the killing of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, La., earlier this month.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund on Wednesday issued a report revealing that 67 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty this year through July 20 —an eight percent increase over the same period last yea, when 62 officers were killed.
