La. Trooper: 1 Officer Fatally Shot, 2 Wounded
Police arrested a man suspected of shooting and killing a police officer and wounding two sheriff's deputies Saturday near a south Louisiana casino.
A Chitimacha tribal officer was pronounced dead at the scene of the shootings near Charenton, while two St. Mary's Parish sheriff's deputies were critically wounded and taken to local hospitals, said Louisiana State Police Trooper Stephen Hammons.
Hammons said the officers were responding to a fire at a trailer home near the Cypress Bayou Casino when the unidentified man allegedly shot them.
The casino is run by the Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana. Hammons said the shooting occurred near but not on tribal land.

So if that's the case (insert Philosoraptor here) why do cops get shot and killed on duty?
