VIDEO: Colorado Officer Shot at Traffic Stop, Suspect Killed

A man who shot a Thornton, CO, officer several times was killed by police early Wednesday. The veteran officer was saved from critical injury by his body armor.

The incident started just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, when the officer saw a suspicious driver pull into an RTD station lot. The car's lights were turned off. 

The officer talked to the driver, and walked back his patrol car. Police told the Denver Channel the officer was seated back in his car when the suspect shot at him with a shotgun.

The officer fired back, but the man returned to his car and drove off.

Responding officers reportedly shot and killed the suspect after he approached them with the shotgun and started shooting.

Good result, but lets learn from the tactics which placed the officer in a bad position.

I agree, although I doubt the Officer could help it.
