A Bad Day In The West

From the Sacramento Bee:
Danny Oliver’s last shift ended with the veteran Sacramento sheriff’s deputy doing something he would have done countless times before in his career, walking toward a car to see what the occupants were doing on his beat.
The 47-year-old father of two never made it to the driver’s window Friday. At about 10:30 a.m., a man armed with an AR-15 rifle aimed out of the car from the parking lot of a Motel 6 at Arden Road and Ethan Way and opened fire, killing Oliver with a shot to the forehead.
Over the next six hours, authorities say, 34-year-old gunman Marcelo Marquez eluded hundreds of officers from Sacramento to Auburn in a crime spree that left Oliver and Placer County sheriff’s Detective Michael David Davis Jr. dead. A third Placer deputy, Jeff Davis, was wounded and later treated and released from a hospital. A motorist was in serious condition from a gunshot to the head.
The carnage ended around 4 p.m., when Marquez meekly surrendered to deputies who converged on a home in Auburn where he had been hiding for hours as one of the largest manhunts in Sacramento history unfolded. from Washington State: A burst of gunfire at Marysville Pilchuck High School on Friday left two students dead, four more injured, and a grieving community asking “Why?”The shooter, a freshman athlete, took his own life after opening fire during the day's first lunch period, Marysville police said. Also killed was a girl who has not yet been publicly identified. Four other victims, all students, remain hospitalized: three in critical and one in serious condition. The shooter has been identified as football player and Tulalip tribal member Jaylen Fryberg. He is the son of Wendy Fryberg, a former Marysville School Board member.Friends and family said two of the shooting victims are Nate Hatch and Andrew Fryberg, Jaylen's cousins. All three freshmen grew up together and went to the homecoming dance as a group earlier this month after Jaylen was voted freshman homecoming king., the 4 injured were shot in the head and are in critical condition.It sounds like there were some family/girl problems that the shooter could not solve.A very bad day in Washington and California.
