OC Sniper

A sniper was taking shots at the residents of the Baker Canyon area of Orange County (never saw that on "The OC"). He winged a couple of deputies before he was finally shot and killed himself.

Were those the two who were shot? If so I can see why.

as far as global stories go, this one's kind of melancholy but ranks up there....how did you get your photos? any ethical qualms there at all?

thats really sad! i watch the news everyday and i've never heard of it..

My job can be exciting and is almost always interesting, but there are many jobs more dangerous than mine.

By the way, the two cops with the guns are just guarding the perimeter access roads. The sniper was about a mile away. Sorry if that makes what I do seem less interesting, but that's just the reality of it. We can (and have a right to) go into dangerous situations, but we're just like the general public in that we have to stay the hell out of active crime scenes. I get plenty of excitment just being close to the action.
