To the families and loved ones of the 4 officers killed in Oakland, CA

3 officers dead, suspect killed in Oakland, Calif. –  (Update as of 11:00 Eastern… 4 officers have died)

OAKLAND, Calif. – Police say three officers and a suspect are dead and another officer is in grave condition after two related shootings, the first after a traffic stop and the second after a massive manhunt ended in gunfire.

Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason says two officers were shot just after 1 p.m. Saturday after they stopped the suspect’s vehicle in east Oakland. One officer was killed and another badly wounded.

The suspect fled the scene on foot into a nearby neighborhood, leading to an intense manhunt by dozens of officers.  Thomason says officers acting on an anonymous tip found the suspect around 3:30 p.m. barricaded inside a building.    Shots were fired and two members of the SWAT team and the suspect was killed.

Condolences to the families and loved ones of these 4  heroic, fallen  officers.  Rest in Peace.  HAM
