2 Officers Shot, Suspect Killed
AP - 6/18/2007 9:47 AM - Updated 6/18/2007 9:48 AM
LAWTON, Okla. (AP) _ A suspect in a drug investigation shot and wounded two officers before he was shot and killed early Monday, authorities said.

An agent with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and an investigator with the Comanche County District Attorney's drug task force were taken to a Lawton hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, said Lawton Police Chief Ronnie Smith.

The two agencies, along with Lawton police, were serving a search warrant at a northeast Lawton apartment shortly before 7 a.m. when the suspect opened fire, Smith said.

``When they announced, the guy started shooting at them through the door,'' Smith said.

Officers returned fire, killing the suspect.

One of the officers was shot in the hand and the other was hit in the torso, Smith said.

The identities of the suspect and the officers were not immediately released.

The man who was killed was a suspect in a methamphetamine case, said OBN spokesman Mark Woodward.

Woodward said no one else was inside the apartment during the shooting.

darn, I thought only suspects were shot during no-knock warrants. Anyway, this proves why no-knock warrants have their place, as long as they get the right address, which is 99.99+% of the time.

+1

Of course some one will come along and try to say the suspect thought who ever was yelling "Police, search warrant" was really a fake trying to rob him...... The story will get twisted, just give it time...

Saw the condo on the news today at noon and it looked pretty nice from the outside. They said the target had surveillance cameras and knew when they arrived.

I am glad none of the good guys were killed. Can't believe the bad guy would start shooting like that though.
