T. PETERSBURG - Three law enforcement officers were shot this morning – a U.S. Marshal and two St. Petersburg police officers – in the 3700 block of 28th Avenue South, police said.

A suspected gunman is barricaded in a home at 3726 28th St. S., and police are trying to negotiate with his family members. He is still shooting at police, officers said.

One of the injured officers had been in the home as well, but an armored vehicle knocked down the door and the officer was evacuated. That officer has been taken to Bayfront Medical Center.

It will be interesting to see the history of the shooter. I fear once again it will be someone who had no business being on the street.

About 50% of everyone in south St Pete has no business being on the street.

Sarah Palin’s fault?

TEA party’s fault?

President Bush’s fault?

All of the above?

I’d put that number much higher, personally.

St. Pete is the definition of cesspool!

We lost two in Miami Thursday, the funeral is this morning (streets closed for the family) and they just heard about this shooting.

4 in Detroit, 2 shot in Washington at a WalMart. It’s open season on cops.

Has Clarence Dupnik run to the TV cameras yet? I assume he'll want to weigh in on it...

Yes, I know this isn't Pima County. I'm going on the assumption he can't help himself...

Detroit— Police today identified the gunman who walked into a police precinct Sunday afternoon and opened fire with a shotgun, injuring four officers before return gunfire took his life.
Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee identified the man as 38-year-old Lamar Moore. Moore entered the 6th Precinct on the city’s northwest side about 4:30 p.m. and shot Cmdr. Brian Davis, in charge of the precinct, Officer David Anderson, Sgt. Ray Saati and Sgt. Carrie Schulz.

Regardless of shooters political/mental history...prayers for the families of our unappreciated law enforcement folks.

Crime against our cops is not a video game or Hollywood movie,folks, but REALITY.

Sorry for the rant..

Remember it was the libs that wanted to let all the nuts out of the nuthouse and put them on the streets, reassuring us that the outpatient setting was good enough to mainstream these people back into society. Sure they will gladly take their medications on the outside.

As with everything the left does, it's the good intentions that they want, and never take the blame for the actual actions.

Looks like the Detroit shooting may be connected to the double homicide case against the shooter’s relative.

Yes it is.

Texas led the nation last year with 13 deaths, I had hoped that record would not be broken, it may happen before the first 3 months in 2011 is over.

Absolutely not a rant! My apologies for not expressing my concern for the officers and their families. Mea culpa. My son is a uniformed deputy sheriff here in Florida, as is a son-in-law.

Channel 13 reported US Marshal stable, 2 St. Pete PD critical. Suspect hid in attic, shots fired, one wounded St. Pete officer was still in attic with suspect, used armored personell carrier to punch hole in house and extract wounded officer, lots of shots fired in rescue and no contact from suspect since rescue, suspect may have been wounded, killed or just laying in wait. Hundreds of officers on scene, nobody left in house but suspect. He had extensive violent criminal history.

Sorry for lack of links, I’m posting from my phone.

“This become epidemic in the past few days......”

It’s typical to publicize every shooting everywhere when FedGov is contemplating new gun control laws.

When the Assault Weapons Ban was being worked, you’d have thought a war was going on, there were so many “assault weapon” stories in the news.

I expect AWB2, mag restrictions, ammo restrictions. I don’t think they’l push the “no concealed weapons within Garand range of a politician”, but we’ll see.

There could actually be an increase in events, but it’s more likely to be a public relations push.

Is this Lamar Moore that is the perp in Detroit?

Is there any city in the populated parts of the US that doesn’t have a violent, stupid population?

Face it. Lamar Moore and these other shooters tend to be stupid, lazy and sociopathic.

My prayers to the police, both living and dead.

He had extensive violent criminal history.

I guess now that he's killed somebody important he may end up on death row. As long as he stuck to doing violence against mere citizens the legal industry was content to try and launder him.

I can’t speak to anywhere, but Illinois. Our County government along with the State government abandoned mental institutions and set the insane free. This may be the trend across the nation as liberalism metastasizes.

I tend toward liberty in all things, but one legitimate function of government is caring for the seriously mentally ill who cannot be cared for by themselves or their families.

All our homeless are made up of the insane and chronic drug/alcohol abusers. The latter are likely a subset that is simply self-medicating.

Listening just now to interview with neighbor- perp said he’d go to hell before he’d go back to prison...also something about him being the brother of a well-known boxer?

Update: suspect still in house, surrounded by a zillion police, power has been shut off.
