After posting only yesterday about an American cop killed in the line of duty, another incident today where a police chief and 4 detectives have been shot by a gunman in New Hampshire.
Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney was killed as police tried to serve a search warrant in the town. Four detectives from other departments were shot. The killer, Cullen Mutrie was later found dead in the apartment with the dead body of his girlfriend.
Chief Maloney was head of a very small police department. The 48-year-old was due to retire in two weeks time. Police killings are tragic full stop but how much more that he had almost done his time and was due to hang up his badge and gun in less than 14 days.
