    Steven Wiggins, Dickson County shooting suspect, has long record of violent crimes in Tennessee
    Elaina Sauber, USA TODAY NETWORK - Tennessee

    Multiple assault charges going back at least a decade, holding a woman at knifepoint, false imprisonment, aggravated kidnapping, assaulting police officers.violation of probation, possession of meth, possession of drug paraphenalia, failure to appear in court charges, to name a few. Hopefully the officers who are tracking him will be able to shoot him in the head and save the taxpayers a large chunk of money.

    Describing one of his (many) prior arrests, the article states the following:
    "“During transport to the hospital, Mr. Wiggins became combative with (an officer), and the ambulance had to stop, and backup was called to the scene,” the arrest affidavit says. "

    Prayers to the fallen officer and his family. Justice is coming.

    Excerpts from the article:

    ....""Sergeant Baker’s handcuffs are on the suspect at this time and he will be taken into the Dickson County Jail with them," Bledsoe told reporters at a late-morning news conference in Dickson."

    "Ray Crouch Jr., the District Attorney General for the 23rd Judicial District, announced Friday that the state will seek the death penalty for both defendants who are both charged with first-degree premeditated murder. "

    "During the press conference, (Sheriff) Bledsoe read a statement prepared by Baker's wife, Lisa Baker.

    "There are no words to describe the level of devastation that myself and family are dealing with," Bledsoe said before choking into tears. "I would like to ask our family, friends and community to help our daughter, Meredith, to always know how wonderful and amazing her father is. His service and dedication to his country and community will always be remembered."

    Gunman dead after 2 cops shot in San Diego standoff; 1 officer reported clinging to life

    Two San Diego police officers were shot Saturday evening after a gunman wearing body armor barricaded himself in an apartment and fired through the walls.

    Andrew Luria


    #BREAKING Update:

    just learned one of the officers shot tonight was hit in the shoulder and expected to be okay, but the other was hit in the chest and is currently in surgery with a life-threatening injury.

    12:57 AM - Jun 24, 2018 · California, USA

    One of the officers is reportedly hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after taking a gunshot wound to the chest. The other officer was hit in a shoulder but was expected to be OK, reported Andrew Lumia of FOX 5 San Diego.

    Both officers are both male, with three and 18 years of experience. Their names have not been released.

    After a standoff of about two hours, the suspect was pronounced dead just before 1 a.m. Sunday local time, after police sent in a robot and a police dog to check the apartment, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

    A camera attached to the robot spotted the suspect lying on the floor with apparent head trauma. Authorites then sent in the dog, which bit the suspect on a leg but received no response.

    It was unclear if the suspect had been shot in the head by police, or if the wound was self-inflicted, FOX 5's Lumia reported.

    Police later conducted welfare checks of nearby apartment units before giving an all clear.

    The situation drew multiple police vehicles to the Rolando-area apartment complex where the gunman, reportedly in his 30s, barricaded himself inside, the Union-Tribune reported.

    Authorities blocked off surrounding streets and evacuated tenants.

    Around 11:20 p.m., a SWAT team had taken a suspect into custody, but it was later confirmed that the suspect was not the shooter.

    No other injuries were reported.
