"St. Louis Police have killed a gunman they say ambushed an officer in a shooting on Sunday.
Around 7:30 p.m. Sunday night, a gunman pulled up in a silver car next to a marked Chevy Tahoe and opened fire, St. Louis Police Department Police Chief Sam Dotson told reporters. The shooting happened hours after a Texas cop was ambushed in a fatal shooting. Police there are still searching for a suspect."

"The 2016 shootings [now 59, RIP], have spanned the nation, from California to Massachusetts, and they've exceeded the number of firearms-related police deaths in all of 2015 . According to the fund, firearms were responsible for 41 of 123 officer fatalities in 2015. [As bad as it seems, today] The decade's highest total came in 2011, with 73 officers shot dead." [This data does not distinguish intentional ambush murders from other types of deaths]
