Firefighter Shot and Killed Exiting Engine On Scene

Twenty-two year old paramedic/firefighter Ryan Hummert of the Maplewood Fire Department in Maplewood, Mo. was shot and killed as he exited his fire engine at 5:40 am today July 21.
A good and decent young man serving his community goes down in a senseless manner. Condolences to Ryan’s family.

    Apparently the 3rd shooting victim was also a cop and he is in critical condition. More details on the St. Louis web site (I’ve shrunk the URL):

    I saw that story online a few hours ago. How horrible! Only 22 years old and had been a firefighter for only 10 months! A cop was shot as well as another first responder, although they didn’t say whether the 3rd person was a cop or firefighter. Condolences to that young man’s family and friends.Ann
