Wounded Va. rookie kills violent suspect
By Mike Saewitz
CESAPEAKE, Va. — On the job for less than a year, Officer Sean Fleming had never drawn his gun - until Monday, when a man pointed an automatic rifle at him and pulled the trigger .
The day started quietly for the 3rd Precinct in Deep Creek. 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.
