    Three Auburn police officers were shot, one killed, and an overnight manhunt for the military-veteran suspect considered armed and extremely dangerous continued Monday morning by dozens of law enforcement agencies until the suspect was caught hours later.

Veteran Auburn police officer William Buechner, on the force since April 2006, was killed. Auburn officers Webb Sistrunk, serving since 2011, and Evan Elliott, serving less than...

    The trial of a man charged with killing two Southern California police officers in an ambush-style attack began with tears Wednesday, as jurors cried when the prosecutor in the case held up the AR-15 rifle used in the killings and described the fatal wounds. Prosecutor Manny Bustamante told jurors in opening statements that admitted gang member John Hernandez Felix targeted the officers simply because they were police. Some cried as he spoke of their wounds. Palm Springs Officers Lesley Zerebny and Jose "Gil" Vega were killed while responding to a domestic violence call at Felix's mother's house on Oct. 8,...
