Just one day after two NYPD officers were shot in Brooklyn, another former NYPD policeman was killed in Florida.
17-year veteran Charles Kondek was on-duty for the Tarpon Springs Police Department at 3am on Sunday morning. There was a complaint that a suspect was knocking on doors at the Villa Plumosa condos, which is what he was responding to.
Kondek, a father of five, was tragically shot and killed while responding to the call.
According to reports, the suspect was driving a white Hyundai Elantra and sped away before he crashed into a pole and another car, then was apprehended.
This is the first officer since 1969 that has been killed in the line of duty in Tarpon Springs. The police department released a statement, saying

This is completely tragic.
It's being reported that two NYPD police officers were shot in Brooklyn at around 3pm on Saturday, in what one law enforcement source called "an execution." The shooting took place near the Tompkins Houses apartment buildings at Myrtle and Tompkins Avenues. Both officers have reportedly died.
The gunman reportedly was "pumping bullets" into their patrol car, which they were sitting in. The gunman then ran to a nearby subway station, where he was shot and killed. It's not clear if the police shot him or if he killed himself.
A high-ranking police official said:
"The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up."
This is a completely tragic situation. Our thoughts are with the families and friends of these officers.

This is absolutely despicable!!
A heartless 82-year-old man (and alleged piece of human garbage) shot a 10-year-old's puppy…
All because the dog was pooping on his property in Finley, Washington.
The six-month-old Australian Shepherd had escaped Katy Davis' backyard through a hole in the fence and ran into Otis McCulley's yard.
When Otis saw the dog was "about to poop" he grabbed his rifle and sent a .22 caliber hollow point round into the pup.

Hundreds of students studying for final exams ran away or hid. Many were rushed out of the library by university personnel.
The intense situation was caught on film by many hiding students, including an SFW cell phone video from inside the library (below).
Police arrived a few minutes after the first shots and confronted the gunman. Tallahassee Police spokesperson Dave Norway said:
