Although this incident did not happen in Houston, it is important to know that this career can get very serious, very fast, at any given time.

The North Hollywood shootout was an armed confrontation between two heavily armed bank robbers and officers of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in the North Hollywood district of Los Angeles on February 28, 1997. Both perpetrators were killed, eleven police officers and seven civilians were injured, and numerous vehicles and other property were damaged or destroyed by the nearly 2,000 rounds of ammunition fired by the perpetrators and the police.

Its a serious job, but for me I am glad there are police officers that are able to keep criminals like these off the streets.
