    St. Louis officer is killed by gunfire
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    08/16/2007

    St. Louis City police officers wait to hear the fate of their colleague.
    (Dawn Majors/P-D)
    ST. LOUIS — A 22-year-old St. Louis police officer who had been with the department less than a year died late Wednesday after being shot.
    As of sunrise today, no suspects had been arrested.
    The shooting happened in an alley in the 1600 block of Semple Avenue in the north part of the city.
    The officer, identified as Norvelle Brown, was apparently trying to detain a suspect when he was shot, Police Chief Joe Mokwa said.
    An aerial and ground search for what police sources said might have been multiple gunmen began almost immediately after the shooting, reported about 9:50 p.m. Searchers cordoned off Semple Avenue between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Cote Brilliante Avenue.
    Brown was wearing a bulletproof vest but the bullet entered through his armpit, hit his lung and apparently pierced an artery, according to sources. Advertisement
    The injured officer radioed that he needed help, and an undercover officer who quickly arrived at the scene performed CPR on him and then raced him to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in the back of a squad car, Mokwa said.
    Mokwa and Mayor Francis Slay somberly announced the officer's death just after 11 p.m. to a crowd of officers and reporters gathered outside the emergency room at Barnes.
    Mokwa and Slay said relatives of the officer had been brought to the hospital under police escort.
    "It's very difficult for the department," Slay said. "Our prayers are with his family and this police department. From our standpoint, everything will be done to catch the individual or individuals responsible."
    At the shooting scene, a search involving dozens of officers continued overnight. High-powered lights were trucked in and trained on the alley where Brown was gunned down.
    "We have some information we're looking into — nothing solid," said Mokwa.
    Friends who gathered outside the hospital described Brown as a dedicated officer who volunteered as a youth coach with the Police Athletic League.
    "He was just a very positive person. He worked with kids and the kids loved him," said Gwendolyn Cherry Sims, who also helps with Police Athletic League.

    This is getting scary guys and girls. Way too many such reports lately. Keep Safe out there and remember Rule 1!

    May the Officer Rest in Peace.

    Officer deaths are up 38% from last year at this time according to ODMP.com, 117 compared to 85. I have said it before, it is a war zone on the street and the only ones we have are each other.

    Another senseless tragedy...

    It is ok, to kill officers, no one cares. Shoot a dirtbag to defend yourself, well the marchers come out.

    then you'll have your community uproar, only it'll be like always "where are the Police when you need them"

    talk about that line getting really really thin =/

    Rest in peace brother
