unidentified officers were in critical condition in hospital
after they were wounded when they approached a suspect who
pulled out a gun and opened fire before fleeing on foot, Police
Chief James Craig told reporters.

torso, but was wearing protective body armor that likely saved

Craig said he was not prepared to say if the two shootings were
