    South Bend Officer Shoots Suspect in Fight for Life

    Monday, 11/20/06, a South Bend, IN PD officer was in a fight for his life against a man trying to kill him. In the end the officer was able to use his handgun and shoot the suspect who later died at a local hospital. Thank God the good guys won in this one. The officer was treated and released at a local hospital of undetermined injuries.

    My hat off to the officer. I sincerely hope he doesn't wind up with any anxiety over it.

    Here is the Article From the South Bend Tribune

    Struggle ends in death
    Police: South Bend officer fatally shot suspect



    TOM MOOR
    Tribune Staff Writer
    Tribune Staff Report

    SOUTH BEND -- A man was shot to death Monday afternoon by a South Bend police officer during what police are calling a physical altercation between the two.

    The shooting victim -- whom police had not identified as of late Monday night -- was reportedly shot in the chest just before 4 p.m. in the front yard of a home at 1915 S. Vernon St., according to police. The crime scene is only about a block away from Lincoln Primary Center.

    The man was taken to Memorial Hospital, where he later died, police confirmed.


    The male officer, who was at the location responding to a domestic disturbance, was treated for minor injuries at an area hospital. Police did not release his name Monday night.

    The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit was called out to investigate, which is standard procedure regarding officer shootings.

    The Metro Homicide Unit was interviewing a few witnesses Monday night.

    Police were called to the 1400 block of East Bowman Street at 3:44 p.m. in reference to a domestic disturbance occurring in the street between two people.

    Officers found no active disturbance in progress when they arrived. They were then given an address in the 1900 block of South Vernon Street -- which is right around the corner from the original call -- where one of the combatants was thought to be.

    The officer called the dispatch center at 3:52 p.m. to advise them he was going to that address.

    Within a minute of the call, a physical altercation between the two then reportedly broke out, which ended when the officer fired his gun. Police say one of the two people involved in the earlier domestic disturbance was the man who was shot.

    "We have reason to believe the officer was being assaulted," Trent said.

    It is not clear at this time why the officer and man were fighting.

    A neighbor -- who declined to give his name -- said he saw the shooting victim lying on the ground on the front yard of the home. He described the shooting victim as a white male in his early or mid-20s.

    Another man was taken away in a police car about 4:40 p.m., after he had been sitting in another police car for more than 30 minutes. Trent did not know whether he was a witness or a suspect in the case.

    The officer, meanwhile, was getting X-rayed at an area hospital Monday evening for his unknown injuries.

    "During normal procedure, we would allow the officer a little bit of time" off work, Trent said.

    Monday's shooting took neighbor Norma Hobbs by surprise.

    "This is rare for our neighborhood," she said. "We have a diverse neighborhood where everyone gets along. Our kids play together with everyone else."

    According to Tribune records, this is the first time in almost five years a South Bend police officer has killed someone.

    Ricki Wiltfong, 49, was the last man killed by a South Bend officer. He was shot by Steven Spadafora during a standoff Jan. 18, 2002, at 1314 W. King St. Police later said that shooting was justified.

    What gripes me is the local TV media keeps refering to the dead punk as victim. The officer is the victim of the attack not the punk.

    Anxiety? If he is like any other cop he has probably been jerking off to fantasies about shooting someone since he was ten.

    No, that would be the gangbangers that I sincerely hope are waiting for you when you are walking alone one night. Who you gonna call then, asshole? Mommy and daddy or 911? Might as well be Ghostbusters, cause your ass would be ready for a six foot pit by the time they got done with you. Fucktard.

    Absolutely!!

    media. The truth doesn't sell papers though, and the bleeding heart liberals need to keep the money to try and buy the power.

    My current theory is that they crawl out of their own asses. Makes sense as the lingering stench of their own feces seems to be like perfume to them.

    The news is now reporting that the officer will not be charged and it was a completly justified homicide.
