    Gosh, how awful. I hope those officers are OK.
    Just evacuate the apartments and then bomb it. One less person to feed.

    3 officers, 1 trooper wounded in Texas

    By STEVE QUINN, Associated Press Writer

    MIDLOTHIAN, Texas - Three police officers and a state trooper were shot and wounded Sunday during a standoff at an apartment complex that stemmed from a report of a broken window, officials said.

    The gunman had not surrendered Sunday evening. Gunfire broke out again shortly before 8 p.m. and several officers wearing gas masks could be seen moving into the building where the gunman was holed up.

    Officers were initially called to the apartment complex because of a report of a broken window in this town about 25 miles southwest of Dallas, Midlothian police said.

    The officers determined the window had been broken by a gunshot and went to the apartment where they believed the shots had been fired. There, police said the gunman opened fire.

    Trooper Rick Smith was shot as he responded to the report of three officers being wounded, said Lisa Block, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman.

    Kim Gladney, 25, who lives in the complex, said she heard 10 shots ring out.

    "After the first five, I knew something was wrong," she said as she stood just beyond the police barricades. "It just didn't sound good."

    Midlothian police Sgt. Brian Woolery was in serious condition at Methodist Dallas Medical Center Hospital, spokeswoman Kathleen Beathard said. Officer Dustin Compton was in good condition and Smith was in fair condition. The fourth officer, Cody McKinney, was in fair condition.

    Ok genius you should have known something was wrong when you heard the first shot ring out dumbass.

    I just got done watching our local news. They reported that all four officers are alive but in critical condition.

    As of 10:30 pm Central time they were still having the stand-off.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
