    Did the suspect shoot the officer? What a coward he is easy way out of all his problems. I don't understand why he was let out of the hospital in the first place. This is terrible these children don't have their father here on earth with them anymore. This guy should of never been let out. A good person and outstanding father gave his life for someone who shouldn't of been allowed to be free.
