Gunman kills police officer in suburban Atlanta
The Associated Press
PINE LAKE, Ga.- Police surrounded a post office in suburban Atlanta on Thursday after a man fatally shot a police officer and ran inside.
Susan Boozer, who witnessed the shooting as she pulled up to the building to check her post office box, said she saw blue lights and "thought it was just somebody getting stopped for a speeding ticket."
She said she saw two officers near a blue sport utility vehicle, one with his gun drawn. The suspect had his arm around one officer saying "'Go on and shoot. Go on and shoot.'"
The man shot at the officer who was pointing the gun at him, then shot the officer he was holding, she said.
