"Domestics" as they are known in the LE world are always high on the list of incidents that get officers hurt or killed.

Wishing both officers a speedy recovery. Those domestic calls have always been dangerous.

When I was a LEO in Wyoming we used to call those calls "Family Violence" calls. They ranked on the top of the dangerous call list. Today Family Violence calls seem to rank evenly with Traffic Stops as more and more officers are being killed during the stop.
