TAMPA - FOX 13 has learned that two Tampa police officers have been shot in the line of duty.



It happened during a traffic stop at 50th Street and 34th Avenue at 2:15 a.m. Tuesday.



Neither officer has been identified. They were taken to Tampa General Hospital and police say both are "very critical."



There is a search for two suspects, a man and a woman. The woman is believed to have been the driver and the male the passenger, who police say was the shooter. Detectives say they are looking for a black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing brown shorts and a white tee shirt.



The vehicle is believed to be a 1994 maroon or red Toyota Camry.



Hillsborough deputies are assisting Tampa police with the manhunt for the suspects, using helicopters, K-9 units, and foot crews in the area.



Police have shut down 50th Street from I-4 to Martin Luther King Blvd.



Anyone with information is asked to call Tampa police or the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

More info

Two Tampa, Florida police officers were shot, one fatally, during a routine traffic stop Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Officer Jeffrey Kocab, 31, died following the shooting at about 2:15 a.m. ET near downtown Tampa, said police spokeswoman Laura McElroy. The second officer, David Curtis, 31, was on life support, she said.

Kocab has been with Tampa police for 14 months, McElroy said. He leaves behind a wife who is nine months pregnant.
Curtis is married and has four sons ranging from 8 months to 9 years old, McElroy said. He has been with the agency for three years and eight months.

A massive manhunt was under way for the shooting suspect. Police were searching for a red 1994 Toyota Camry connected to the shooting and an African-American male and female, McElroy said. The male was described as being in his mid- to late 20s and weighing about 150 to 170 pounds. He is thought to be wearing brown shorts and a white T-shirt, McElroy said. No description was available for the woman.

Because when the Polk Co SO got a cop killer tracked into the brush he started shooting.  They responded with a WWI scale fusilade.



Buh-bye to one more savage.



Link to old story: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,216898,00.html




"Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he was not concerned by the number
of shots fired.



 


   
"You have to understand, he had already shot and killed a
deputy, he had already shot and killed a K-9 and he shot and injured
another deputy," Judd said by phone Saturday. "Quite frankly, we weren't
taking any chances."



 


   
Ten SWAT officers surrounded Freeland on Friday as he hid
beneath brush and a fallen tree in a rural area. Authorities say he
raised the gun belonging to the deputy he had killed, prompting nine
officers to fire.



 


   
"I suspect the only reason 110 rounds was all that was fired
was that's all the ammunition they had," Judd said. "We were not going
to take any chance of him shooting back."

For the locals:




Hillsborough deputies are helping search for the Camry's occupants. The driver is a black female. The passenger is a black man in his mid- to late 20s. He's about 5-foot-10 and 150 to 170 pounds. He has a 1-inch afro and was last seen wearing brown shorts, a white shirt, a black vestand white sneakers,

I'll keep an eye out, I have some running around to do this morning for parts. Freakin thunderstorms cooked a bunch of my UPS's again.

By the way, Grady Judd is probably one of the best Sheriffs in the country.

why am i not surprised that both appear to be previous booking photos?  dollars to donuts says he had $20 worth of weed, and didn't want to go back to jail.  what a waste.

I heard this morning that the guy had over 43 arrests in Hillsboro county alone. Was a known Gang banger. A known coke dealer. Had car jacking, drug arrests, gun crimes, tampering with witness etc...
Some States attorney there had not prosecuted him numerous times. Don't know all the story, but Mr. Blood / Crip should have been in prison.

Morris was released from state prison in April after serving two years on a drug conviction in Hillsborough County, records show.

In October 2005, he was arrested by Tampa police on charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and robbery. He was found not guilty.
