Shooting Incident in Salina, New York

On Sunday evening, a police officer and a sheriff's deputy were shot and killed in the town of Salina, New York [1]. The incident began when Syracuse police officers spotted a suspicious vehicle in the area of Emerson Avenue and Hamilton Street in Syracuse. They attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused and fled the area. The officers lost sight of the vehicle but recorded the license plate [1].

After checking the vehicle registration, officers determined the owner resided in Salina. Officers, along with Onondaga County Sheriff's deputies, responded to the address and found the vehicle parked at a residence on Darien Drive. They requested assistance from the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office because they learned that the individual driving the vehicle might be armed [1].

Shortly after their arrival, the officers and deputies encountered an armed man, leading to an exchange of gunfire. One officer, one deputy, and the armed suspect were shot and transported to Upstate University Hospital, where they succumbed to their injuries [1]. The suspect was also killed in the incident [1].

The names of the police officer, sheriff's deputy, and suspect have not been released at this time [1]. The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office is waiting for a warrant to search the house, but there is no direct threat to the community, and the area is secured.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the two law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, as well as with their brothers and sisters in law enforcement who are suffering in the wake of this tragedy [1].
