Another Arizona Police Officer Shot And Killed

This officer's death won't get much attention but another police officer in Arizona was shot and killed today.
From The Officer Down Memorial Page: Police Officer Alex Yazzie was shot and killed near Red Valley, Arizona, while pursuing a subject who had shot at another officer who had responded to a domestic violence call in Little Water Trading Post, New Mexico, shortly after 4:00 pm.
The initial call involved a report of a barricade situation in which a subject armed with an AR-15 rifle was holding his family hostage. The man opened fired on responding officers and then fled across state lines into Arizona, approximately 29 miles away. The man opened fire on officers a second time after they located him in Red Valley at approximately 10:30 pm.
Officer Yazzie was fatally shot and two other officers were wounded during the shootout. A second officer was also wounded.
Officer Yazzie was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

Because this happened on an Indian Reservation in the middle of nowhere, not too many people will read about Officer Yazzie being killed in the line of duty.
RIP, Officer Yazzie and prayers to your family and the members of your police department.
