    Two deputies killed, two wounded in Louisiana shooting

    Two deputies killed, two wounded in Louisiana shooting

    (CNN) -- Two law enforcement officers died and two were injured in a series of apparently linked shootings early Thursday in LaPlace, Louisiana, authorities said.

    The first shooting happened in a parking lot at a steel plant, Sheriff Mike Tregre said. The second happened when officers went to a nearby trailer park to investigate the first shooting and were ambushed by a man armed with what the sheriff described as an assault rifle, he said.

    In addition to the two wounded law enforcement officers, some of the five people taken into custody also suffered gunshot wounds, Tregre said.

    Like it would matter. And what's up with "boys and girls"?

    Assault rifles should be outlawed.

    That's a tiny number given the size of the US. There are thousands of gun deaths every year in the US, the vast majority just aren't reported outside the local area. I doubt there has been any significant change in recent weeks, theis kind of incident will just be getting a little more media attention and you're a little more aware of them.

    Seriously? there are on the order of 44 people (16,000 a year) killed by criminals using firearms a DAY. Three times that number daily by criminals using means other than firearms. Those incidents are completely ignored, unless there is some sort of shock value. On the same day the Sikh temple was targeted a woman shot 7 people in Detroit because she was pissed over a casino argument.

    It will be helpful to actual see what happened here. I would bet that a wanted individual opened fire because he knew he was about to go to jail, then they opened fire again at the trailer they were at for the same reason.

    They were. It didnt help. Stats show that when ALL guns were outlawed in Australia violent crime went up dramatically in every major category.

    Re: Two deputies killed, two wounded in Louisiana shooting

    I'm very interested to find out why the gunman initially shot the off duty sheriff's deputy.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the slain deputies. No man is greater than he who gives his life to protect others.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
