Suspect Prowler Wounded In DIS

FLORENCE (CBS) — A suspect running from sheriff’s deputies in the unincorporated Florence area was wounded when he pointed a handgun at lawmen as he tried.

Deputies responded to a prowler call  at 8:37 a.m. to the 9200 block of Zamora Avenue, near 92nd Street and Compton Avenue, said Lt. Dave Dolson of the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

The suspect then ran into a garage and a special weapons team was called, Dolson said. The suspect was taken into custody at 12:50 p.m.

He was taken to a hospital where he was listed in stable condition. No deputies were injured.

    Thats what happens when you point a gun at cops. Maybe the loser should stop trying to steal other people’s stuff and go get a damn job. Hope they kill him next time!

    We’re getting a little too liberal with the acronyms here: DIS.

    DIS = Deputy Involved Shooting. Typically journalists use OIS..Officer Involved Shooting. Still, I agree, neither acronym should be used because most people do’nt know what it means
