Two Louisiana sheriff's deputies died and two others were wounded early Thursday in a shooting outside a steel plant, state police said.

Two suspects are in custody and one remains on the loose, according to state police Trooper Melissa Matey.

Numerous state police SWAT teams, helicopters and troopers were involved in the search for the remaining suspect, Louisiana State Police said.

Matey said two of the deputies with the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff's Office were working an off-duty job, while two others were on duty.

At least some of the deputies, whose identities have not yet been released, were on traffic duty at the Bayou Steel Plant in LaPlace when the shootings happened in the parking lot around 5 a.m. (6 a.m. ET), according to State Police Sgt. Ann Dusang.

She initially said the deputies had been ambushed, but Matey later backed off that assertion.

"Right now we're going to say they had an encounter. We're not exactly sure if they were ambushed," she said.

The two wounded officers have been hospitalized, Dusang said.

I guess I should have added more or else defensive gun owners would be upset and ask for the thread to go away.

Anyway this wasn't a mass shooting either. Only two police officers killed after they were ambushed with an "assault rifle" while responding to a shooting that injured two others

Barely even newsworthy. Sorry for dropping the ball.

It has nothing to do with defensive gun owners. I already said I would fill this server with shootings from around the world... It has to do with a total and complete waste of space and time. It isn't starting up any useful conversations. It is pretty much covered by other threads. You are just copying and pasting news stories. Whoopty freaking doo.

WASHINGTON — A security guard for a conservative Christian lobbying group has been shot in the arm in the nation’s capital.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier says a man walked into the Family Research Council in the city’s Chinatown neighborhood about 10:45 a.m. Wednesday and was confronted by a security guard, whom he shot. The guard and others wrestled the man to the ground and he was taken into custody by the FBI.

The FBI and police say it’s too early to know the circumstances of the shooting and whether it was connected to the Family Research Council’s activities.
I guess you can file this one under 'Almost'

Yes really.
At about 11 a.m., Corkins entered the Washington office of the Family Research Council, where he encountered the building manager, Leo Johnson, at the front door, according to a criminal complaint that cited a witness. Corkins "stated words to the effect of, 'I don't like your politics,' " the witness told FBI agents, according to the complaint.
...
Officials recovered a loaded Sig Sauer 9mm pistol and two additional loaded 9mm magazines, according to the complaint.

Inside the backpack, police found 50 rounds of 9mm ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches, the complaint says.
So yes that one was a failed mass shooting.

I am pretty happy this guy got caught. A mass shooting wouldn't be good PR for the gay rights movement.

"Assault with intent to kill"? Really? I don't know the intricacies of DC law but that sure doesn't sound like "attempted murder" to me. Oh well, no surprise there, DC coddles criminals like no tomorrow.

he won't get out in 21 years lol

it's 21 years if he's considered not a danger, or he isn't at danger by being outside.

quite clearly he's never going to fulfil the 2nd part of that condition, and that's assuming he even gets to 21 years served without being stabbed inside.


i know it's fun to just look at a headline and go 'lol thats stupid', but you're wrong

New York City officials say a laid-off women's accessories designer shot and killed a co-worker outside the Empire State Building, then got in a shootout with police.

Fifty-three-year-old Jeffrey Johnson opened fire with a .45-caliber pistol at about 9 a.m. Friday on the Fifth Avenue side of the building. He was shot dead by police.

Nine others were hit by gunfire. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that some of the victims may have been hit by police bullets. The victims are expected to survive.

Eye witnesses said he started shooting at random people. The police claim they only fired 14 rounds. It is more likely he started shooting random people than it is likely the police managed to wound 9 people with 14 shots.

Another almost
The 15-year old had opened fire in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School around 10:30 a.m., and got off just two shots before a gutsy guidance counselor grabbed him in a bear hug.

Several other teachers then stepped in to help, and in the struggle, the student fired off another shot that didn’t hit anybody. All the teachers held the shooter until cops arrived and marched him off in handcuffs.
...
The names of the suspect, his victims and the teachers have not been released. But students directed reporters to a Facebook page of a Goth-looking teen who attends the high school and left a troubling message on his page. It read: “First day of school, last day of my life.”

It concluded, “F--- the world.”
...
The wounded 17-year-old was in critical condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Witnesses told WBAL-TV said the gun-toting teen said, “I’m going to kill you” and opened fire.
