I have some sad news to report from my city. Saturday afternoon, 3/21/09, during a routine traffic stop two Oakland police officers were shot. One was killed and the other was declared brain dead Sunday afternoon. About two hours after the shooting during the traffice stop at 3:00 PM on Saturday police converged on an apartment building not far from the first shooting in an attempt to apprehend the suspect. He opened fire with an automatic weapon on the policemen killing two and injuring another.. The suspect was killed.
Please say a prayer for all concerned. You can read more about it here.
