    Oakland police shoot and kill suspect

    Wednesday, July 15, 2009

    (07-15) 18:13 PDT Oakland, Calif. (AP) --

    Oakland police have shot and killed a man after officers say he opened fire on them.

    Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason says the incident began when two officers approached a man they wanted to talk to about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

    Thomason says the man, who has not been named, pulled out a gun and started shooting.

    Both officers returned fire, hitting the suspect as he ran from the area and continued to shoot at the officers.

    Neither officer was hurt, but police say a person standing nearby was hit by broken glass.

    Both officers have been placed on paid administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.

    you'd think, but some people decide that shooting at the nearest uniformed public employee is the best way to express their dissatisfaction with the world.
