Memphis Police Shooting: One Officer DeadBy: Amanda Crum - December 14, 2012
It has been a day of unspeakable tragedy concerning gun violence after an elementary school shooting in Connecticut, and now a report out of Memphis tells of more families in mourning.
Two police officers were involved in a shootout when they arrived at a home to serve a drug-related search warrant early this morning; Martoiya Lang and William Vromah were subjected to gunfire when they showed up, and returned fire on the suspects, who have yet to be identified. Lang, a mother of four, died from her injuries. Vromah was seriously injured and is currently in the care of Regional Medical Center.
What a terrible day. 2 Memphis Police officers shot, one killed; & the terrible shooting in Newton, CT. Thoughts & prayers for the families.
My prayers go out to all those people killed in the Connecticut shooting. And the police officers that were shot here in Memphis.
Ohio mall shooting, Connecticut shooting, and a Memphis police officer was shot all in one week. This world needs major help.
