Wounded Va. rookie kills violent suspect

By Mike Saewitz

Fleming began patrolling there on his own only six months ago, making traffic stops, working on strategies to reduce robberies and not shying away from friendly competitions with about a half-dozen officers he'd graduated from the academy with in August.
