This is what happens in places without guns–Case XII

If this had happened in the U.S. where police officers are armed things probably would have turned out different.  But instead it was in the “gun free paradise” of London England:

LONDON (Reuters) – A female trainee police officer is seriously ill in hospital on Tuesday after being shot as she and a colleague tried to apprehend a suspected burglar.

Police said the incident occurred shortly before midnight when two officers, an experienced male officer and the 25-year-old female probation officer, were called to a burglary in the Lenton area of Nottingham and tried to stop a man nearby.

“The suspect produced a firearm and shot one of the officers,” a Nottinghamshire police spokeswoman said, adding the victim had not yet been named.

The wounded officer, who was wearing body armour, has undergone emergency surgery for a gunshot injury and is in intensive care in a serious condition.

No one has been arrested.
