The 2nd officer arrived from the opposite direction and the suspect opened fire on her as she exited her cruiser, hitting her in the foot. She returned fire, killing the suspect.
“He was coming around the house. He started taking fire from the subject who was probably 60 to 80 feet away in a kind of darkened area. As the second officer approached from the opposite direction, she saw the exchange of gunfire going on. She exited her vehicle. The subject then turned on her – started shooting rounds toward her. She returned fire. She was shot in the foot. And the subject is deceased.
