Summary: Officer Stephen Amos was shot and killed while he and another officer were responding to a call of shots fired. Officer Amos and his partner were traveling to a training session when they heard a call for shots fired in a nearby apartment complex. Officer Amos drove their patrol car onto the street when they encountered sniper fire. He positioned the patrol car to block traffic and got out to take cover.
