BBC News - Sutton St James siege officer was shot in face
A police officer hurt at the beginning of a siege in Lincolnshire was shot in the face, it has been confirmed.
Two officers were fired upon when responding to reports of an armed man in Sutton St James on Tuesday.
A house was surrounded and the single occupant, 61-year-old Barry Horspool, was later found dead inside. The cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
Despite initially ruling it out, police have now said the officer was hit by a bullet - but only slightly hurt.
Ch Supt Lee Freeman said: "We are now providing as much support as we can to our officer and his family, along with the family of Mr Horspool."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
