More shootings

3 Las Vegas Metro SWAT officers were shot early Monday morning while serving a narcotics related search warrant in the city of Henderson. All three are expected to make a full recovery. Unfortunately the suspect lived long enough to be taken into custody.

Thus far there have been at least 6 or more LVMPD police officers shot since we have moved here in July of 2007.

One of Karen's co worker's brothers was shot and killed while stopped at a traffic light a few days before Christmas. By all accounts thus far, he was an upstanding individual. He was on his way to one of his several jobs that morning. The shooting happened near the intersection of Washington Ave and Martin Luther King Blvd. It is an intersection that, because of work, I am very familiar with. Its not a good area.
At this point police suspect that the shooting evolved from a road rage incident but the investigation continues.....
