5 dead, including 2 sheriff deputies, after standoff in North Carolina where suspected shooter killed mom, stepdad
[www.nydailynews.com]

Two sheriff’s deputies were among five people who died Wednesday in a grisly ambush and standoff involving a barricaded shooting suspect at a home in North Carolina, officials said.

The suspected shooter allegedly killed his mother and stepfather inside the home and then opened fire on deputies who responded to a welfare check at the residence in Boone, news station WCNC reported.

The 13-hour ordeal finally ended after the shooter died in an apparent suicide, an official with the Morganton Department of Public Safety told The News Herald.

The two deputies who lost their lives worked for the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office, officials said.
-
The suspect continued shooting at other law enforcement officers who tried to approach the residence, he said.
One bullet hit a police officer who was wearing a protective helmet and was not seriously wounded.
-
Deputies arrived at the home around 9:44 a.m. Wednesday for the welfare check after an employer called to report one of the homeowners did not show up at work and was not responding to phone calls, the sheriff’s department said. The family members’ vehicles were parked outside the home when deputies arrived.

“Upon entering the home, two Watauga County Sheriff’s deputies received gunshot wounds from an unknown individual within the residence,” the department said in a statement.

Yes, it's true, AMERICA NEEDS MORE GUNS!

Sp we have another preventable tragedy and I cannot believe the deputies who tragically lost their lives were sent into this situation.

The family had warned the week before that their 32 year old son was planning something violent, possibly against the public, and that he had amassed a lot of weapons.

But they obviously could not protect themselves from him.

NC has no red flag law so LE could not go get his weapons.

The sheriff said they were trying to get this 32 year white son of upper middle class parents to a place where they could safely arrest him. Sherriff is glad the shooting was only in the home.
WTF?

This wouldn’t have happened if we had more gunz. Most of the cops killed this year were because of domestic violence situations.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
