For the third time this year, we have a report of a fatality when police responded to a call related to domestic violence...
On at least two occasions, the officers arrived at the scene, AFTER a woman/mother/wife was murdered at the hands of her husband, with the use of a gun.
This time, the police appear to have gotten there in time. In this instance, it was the husband who was shot and killed by the police, when they responded to the call of domestic violence. Disturbing trend.
