CHP Officer Wounded In SoCal Gunfight
May 10, 2013
A California Highway Patrol officer was shot in the leg during a gun battle with murder suspects at the end of a high-speed pursuit in San Bernardino County on Thursday.
One murder suspect was killed and another was wounded during the midday gunfire in a shopping center parking lot.
The high-speed chase began in Yucca Valley, where a person was shot to death in a failed carjacking attempt at about 11:40 a.m. CHP officers pursued a silver sedan down Highway 62 and onto Interstate 10. The vehicle exited in San Bernardino and turned onto Hospitality Lane and finally Carnegie Drive.
The suspects opened fire on officers and San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies, reports the Press-Enterprise.

there are conflicting news reports about what occurred, but the fact remains that CCW is hard to obtain in CA and criminals are not abiding by the new law outlawing open carry of UNLOADED guns. National reciprocity of CCW is needed so crooks in CA know that the person they attack might be carrying and give them the death penalty on the spot.

Rick, you are correct and I bet the crooks weren't too worried about abiding by the 10 shot magazine rule during their murder, attempted car jacking and shootout.

Criminals obey the law common guys give them a break. Right below the sternum to the left with a nickel ounce of lead. They have no remorse about shooting at us. Take care and stay safe. (retired VAPD)
