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.
