Arkansas police officer killed by stray bullet while in his home

http://abcnews.go.com/US/arkansas-polic ... d=54808766
Capt. Joe Baker, of the West Memphis, Arkansas, police said the officer from nearby Forrest City was struck by the bullet at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The officer, identified as Oliver Johnson, was off-duty at the time and not involved in law enforcement activities when he was killed.
Back in 2010 West Memphis was the town where sovereign seminar scammer Jerry Kane and his son Joe killed two police officers during a traffic stop and then went on to be shot themselves at a local WalMart.

6 shot at Little Earth housing complex in Minneapolis
One of the victims was a juvenile. All went to HCMC, and their injuries were not life-threatening.
By Pat Pheifer and Libor Jany Star Tribune MAY 3, 2018 — 7:24AM

Six people were shot Wednesday night following a fight at Minneapolis’ Little Earth housing complex.

The victims were taken to HCMC; their injuries are not life-threatening, police spokeswoman Sgt. Darcy Horn said. Five of the victims are adults; one is a juvenile.

The shooting was reported about 7:45 p.m. in the 2400 block of Ogema Place.

“It started as a fight, and at some point shots were fired,” Horn said. “We are processing the scene and collecting evidence, actively investigating. It’s a large crime scene, outside right now ... [and] certainly could expand.”

This is much more of the type of mass shooting I worry about. Not pre planned stuff with semi-automatic rifles and pipe bombs, but regular old run of the mill social conflicts that escalate because someone has a handgun in their glove compartment or nightstand.

Yeah, but according to the gun fools, this won't happen if everyone has guns. :roll:

So, kinda sounds like this one might be another 'incel rebellion' guy:
A sniper who targeted cars on a Georgia highway left behind a "hate-filled" document describing the Parkland high school gunman Nikolas Cruz as a hero, a sheriff said.

More Than 30 Mishaps From Armed Adults at Schools Since 2014, Review Finds
They are the "good guys with guns" the National Rifle Association says are needed to protect students from shooters: a school police officer, a teacher who moonlights in law enforcement, a veteran sheriff. Yet in a span of 48 hours in March, the three were responsible for gun safety lapses that put students in danger.

:snippity:
All told, an Associated Press review of news reports collected by the nonprofit Gun Violence Archive revealed more than 30 publicly reported mishaps since 2014 involving firearms brought onto school grounds by law enforcement officers or educators. Guns went off by mistake, were fired by curious or unruly students, and were left unattended in bathrooms and other locations.

Amid a nationwide push to arm teachers or add more police officers and armed guards, the AP review suggests that doing so will almost certainly have unintended consequences. The accidents are rare, but the actual number is probably higher because schools are not required to report them. And they have frightened students, outraged parents, prompted disciplinary and criminal investigations and left at least nine people injured.

Some insurance companies have refused to cover schools that allow non-law enforcement personnel to be armed. And many school employees have said in surveys that they would feel less safe if more of their colleagues were carrying weapons.

The article below is sobering. And also I think it adds to the many reasons why arming teachers is a lame brained idea.
Ready, Fire, Aim: The Science Behind Police Shooting Bystanders
By Nate Rawlings @naterawlingsSept. 16, 2013

On Saturday night in New York City’s Times Square, police opened fire on a man who was walking erratically into oncoming traffic and, when approached by law enforcement, reached into his pocket as if he were grabbing a weapon. The officers fired three shots. One hit a 54-year-old woman in the knee and another grazed a 35-year-old woman’s buttocks. None hit the suspect, whom police subsequently subdued with a taser.

While incidents of police shooting bystanders are uncommon, they shouldn’t surprise New Yorkers (or anyone else) when they happen. Just last year, New York police injured nine onlookers in the course of responding to a murder suspect near the Empire State Building. As police chased the man through rush hour crowds, he fired at the cops; they returned 16 shots, hitting the man 10 times. That actually counted as accurate shooting for the NYPD.

According to a 2008 RAND Corporation study evaluating the New York Police Department’s firearm training, between 1998 and 2006, the average hit rate during gunfights was just 18 percent. When suspects did not return fire, police officers hit their targets 30 percent of the time.

The data show what any police officer who has ever been involved in a shooting can tell you–firing accurately in a stressful situation is extremely hard. In an article for TIME last year, Amanda Ripley looked what happens in the brain and body when shots are fired. The brain stem sends out signals that cause blood vessels to constrict and hormones to surge. Studies have shown that eyesight becomes narrower (literally tunnel vision) under such conditions. People who have been in gunfights describe hearing very little and perceieve time slowing down. Amid this chaos, as police officers have to make difficult, split-second decisions, humans can lose motor skills as the body reverts to basic fight or flight instincts.
Here's the last two paragraphs. :mrgreen: Sekrit Stuffs!
Overcoming those natural reactions is the goal of rigorous training. Many police departments focus on decision-making as much as marksmanship, helping officers to decide in an instant whether to fire their weapon. Instructors will show targets–both good and bad guys–for only a split second, then score officers on their choices as well as their accuracy. The goal is to inoculate officers against the stress, allowing them to experience what a chaotic situation will feel like before they face the real thing.

The NYPD has some of the most comprehensive and sophisticated firearms training of any police force in the country, using a combination of live fire, non-lethal force and simulated scenarios. But on Saturday, that apparently wasn’t enough for the officers involved to land even a single bullet where they intended.
Here's the link if anyone cares to have it:

Posted today on our neighborhood's Nextdoor webpage-
9 shots fired!
Cedar Bayou Rd. last night around 10p.m. we were woken up by gun shots (9). We only found one shell casing in the road. Police were notified, but said "ya, they do that on this street and Kilgore all the time." I wish we had gotten a better look at the vehicle they were in, all I know is it was white. The shell we found was a 40 cal. Blazer.... I hope whoever it was gets caught and punished.They may have only shot in the air... but those bullets come down.
Too close to home. :?

Boy shot at Highland High in Palmdale, Calif.; fellow student detained

PALMDALE, Calif. -- Authorities say they caught a 14-year-old suspected of shooting a former classmate at a California high school after the boy called his father to say he fired his gun in the air and was headed to a grocery store near campus. A boy was shot in the arm at a southern California high school Friday morning, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell said Friday that the 14-year-old's father then called a family friend who's an off-duty police officer and told him where the boy was.

The off-duty officer, who works for Los Angeles police, then detained the teen.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says the 15-year-old victim was shot in the arm and is expected to fully recover.

The rifle used at Highland High School in Palmdale was found in a field near the school.

Investigators say the shooting stemmed from a dispute between the 14-year-old and the victim.

Dramatic surveillance video captures the moment a gunman suddenly opened fire on Indiana police officers with an assault rifle.

No officers were injured. https://abcn.ws/2rSgluP
The gunman, identified as 51-year-old Barry Freeman, opened fire near his home around 9 p.m., killing a 56-year-old neighbor, Jeffrey Kempf, and hitting four nearby residences and two businesses, police said at a press conference. The suspect may have thought he was firing at an officer, not his neighbor, when he hit him, police added.

One portion of the surveillance footage showed the suspect crouching behind a parked SUV with his rifle aimed toward the street in "an apparent ambush attempt," police said.

Tools of Modern Terror
How the AK-47 and AR-15 Evolved Into Rifles of Choice for Mass Shootings

Time and again it’s the same. A lone gunman or a small group of killers with rifles commits spectacular crimes that seize the attention of the world.

The list reaches back decades: the killing of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972; the school takeover in Beslan, Russia, in 2004; the attacks in Mumbai, India, in 2008; the mall assault in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2013; the killing of more than 100 people in Paris in 2015; the firing into a country music concert in Las Vegas in October 2017, which killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in the most lethal mass shooting in modern American history; the premeditated Valentine’s Day attack by a former student on a high school in Parkland, Fla.

Often the rifles are variants of the AK-47, the world’s most abundant firearm, an affordable and simple-to-use assault rifle of Soviet lineage that allows a few people to kill scores and menace hundreds, and fight head-to-head against modern soldiers and police forces.

In recent years they have also been descendants of the AR-15, the American military’s response to the Kalashnikov’s spread. Semiautomatic versions of the AR-15 were used by sympathizers of the Islamic State in San Bernardino, Calif., in 2015, and by gunmen in school attacks; a Mini-14 and an MCX, rifles that fire the same cartridge as the AR-15 and compete with it for market share, were used in the mass shootings in Norway in 2011 and in Orlando, Fla., in June.
:snippity:
In the hands of terrorists, military-style rifles have repeatedly been used for swiftly killing on a large scale. How did the Kalashnikov — a disruptive technology that flooded the world almost three generations ago and still retains an outsize role in organized violence — become such a ready amplifier of evil and rage? In what ways did it drive the AR-15 and its competitors to such prominence, too?
Lots more...

Dixon, Illinois school shooting.
A police officer working at Dixon High School on Wednesday shot and wounded a former student who fired a gun near the school’s gym and later tried to shoot the officer Wednesday, officials said.
...
The school resource officer, identified as Mark Dallas, confronted the suspect, who then fled from the school with the officer in pursuit, Howell said. During the pursuit, the suspect fired several shots at the officer but did not strike him.

The officer returned fire and struck the suspect, who was then taken into custody just west of the school, Howell said. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No one else was injured.

Sheriff: Active shooter reported at Texas high school

Associated Press Associated Press 9 minutes ago .

SANTA FE, Texas (AP) -- Law enforcement officers are responding to a high school near Houston after an active shooter was reported on campus.

The Santa Fe school district issued an alert Friday morning saying Santa Fe High School has been placed on lockdown.

Galveston County sheriff's Maj. Douglas Hudson says units are responding to reports of shots fired. He had no immediate details on whether anyone has been hurt.

Santa Fe is a city of about 13,000 residents, located 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of Houston.

One student told Houston television station KTRK in a telephone interview that a gunman came into her first-period art class and started shooting. The student says she saw one girl with blood on her leg as the class evacuated the room.

Authorities have not yet confirmed that report.
