Tampa Tribune

TAMPA, Fla. — You could hear in their voices that this was no ordinary call: A fellow police officer had been shot.

The police cruisers screamed through the Tampa night, hitting speeds as high as 87 mph as they weaved in and out of traffic. Their worst fears were confirmed when they reached Nebraska Avenue and East Arctic Street on Aug. 19: Cpl. Mike Roberts was on the ground, bleeding, his assailant nowhere to be found.
