I am sketchy on the details, but yesterday an 18 y/o college student managed to remove a pistol from an on duty police officer in my town, and then take his own life. The tragedy took place at a local private university. I'll read the paper later and see if they give more details. Has anyone else seen or readabout this? I'm curious as to the details....

I have heard of suicide by cop, but this is new. That sucks...that cop has got to feel terrible. The dept will probably have a seminar or 2 on weapon retention...I am not assigning blame here because I have no idea what happened. Just pointing out what I think will happen.

That's definitely a tragedy!

What's bad, too, is that the public will blame the gun for the killing.

Unfortunately, suicides by way of gunshots happen almost every day around the country.

Oxford:(

Well, this is terrible for the cop. But it is a fact, if someone is dead-set on taking their own life, they will.

What's really bad is that the cop will get sued, and probably lose to the family of the deceased!
