A routine check turned deadly in Arizona Monday morning.
While officers were conducting a “routine check” for illegal guns and drugs, shots rang out.
When the dust settled, two officers were wounded, and a DEA agent was killed.
Check Goes Awry
This is how quickly things can go sideways for law enforcement.
The officers were doing a check as they have probably done a hundred times.
The officers reportedly found contraband on a passenger and were taking the suspect into custody when everything turned to chaos.
Another passenger opened fire, hitting three officers in the process.

DEA special agent Cheri Oz stated, “I am deeply saddened to confirm that one special agent died as a result of the injuries sustained during the shooting.
“A second special agent is in critical condition and a task force officer is in stable condition.”
No passengers were injured in the shooting.
According to local authorities, the alleged shooter was found dead inside the restroom of the train.
Somehow, it would not be surprising to see this incident turned around by Democrats and/or liberals to fault the police.
