BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The unpredictable nature of domestic disturbance calls makes them among the most dangerous situations that a law enforcement officer handles.
Just this weekend, Kern County Sheriff's Deputy Thomas Moore suffered serious injuries responding to a domestic disturbance when the suspect opened fire with a shotgun. Moore was in serious but stable condition at Kern Medical Center on Monday after undergoing surgery.
