The news is reporting that the officer was shot and killed during an on-campus traffic stop. The shooter then ran on foot towards a campus parking lot where another unidentified body was subsequently discovered.

Holy crap, I also read that a second person was found dead... wonder if maybe that is the shooter / self inflicted?

RIP to the officer and I hope the area gets secured and no one else is hurt.

At this point, it does NOT look like its the shooter. All the journaltards are reporting the shooter is still on the loose.

Nothing. It just happened that a traffic stop was conducted on campus, as tragic as it was.

I'm guessing that the unidentified person's car is missing. . .

State police news conference states that a weapon has been recovered, but they will not be releasing type/caliber at this time.

MeefZah
12-08-2011, 16:01
NBC is reporting that the second body is believed to be the suspect, and that the recovered weapon was his own, but police wouldn't comment on that at press conference Thursday evening, saying their investigation is still pending.

As I suspected... glad he didn't hurt anyone else.

I just read a report that the shooter was not the person stopped during the traffic stop. They are saying the shooter walked up and shot the officer while he was conducting a traffic stop on someone else.

Been a bad year for SW Virginia, hell, it hasn't been very good for any of us. 147 so far this year with the deputy down in NC today also. I hate that I use a berevement band enough that I carry one around in my shirt pocket....

http://www2.wsls.com/news/2011/dec/09/1/virginia-tech-shooter-named-ar-1533359/

Does anyone know if this little turd has any ties to the OWS crowd? He fits the same age group, and the shooting appears to be an ambush. At lot of the OWSers were making threats and hurling venom at the police in general. I just wonder if he had any ties.

I thought the individual responsible for shooting the 3 cops at Valley Brook OK might have been a radical OWSer. Or at least, inspired by the OWS rhetoric. Vandalize city hall... that's normal OWS stuff. But bring a gun while doing that? Kind of unusual unless he had been looking to send a HUGE OWS message.

The way that punk has hiss head tilted in the picture you can tell he is a piece of dung.

This truly was a senseless crime. May Officer Crouse Rest in Peace. Godspeed to him in heaven.

I don't know..... word I am hearing so far is that we may never know. It is like earlier this year up in Buchanan county when the four deputies up there were shot, and two killed. They just don't have any idea why the guy twisted off, he had never been in trouble with the law before and he just went south one day.

It was a very moving service. We had Campus Police from all over the east coast. I heard we even had a Canadian and California department there though I never saw them.
