Oakland Police Department – A Sad Day

My condolences to the officers of the Oakland Police Department, California, and to the families of the four police officers killed yesterday.

After what started as a traffic stop yesterday afternoon ended with the shooting deaths of Sgt. Mark Dunakin, 40, and Officer John Hege, 41 (Hege passed away this morning). 

Then began a massive manhunt.  Two hours later the suspect was located inside an apartment building, where he shot at SWAT officers, killing Sgt. Ervin Romans, 43, and Sgt. Daniel Sakai, 35.  A third SWAT officer was injured in the shooting but is expected to survive his injuries.  The suspect was shot and killed.

More coverage can read at The San Francisco Chronicle.

There are no words to convey the loss to the policing community of Oakland, California.
