Three, Including Officer, Shot And Killed By Person Facing Eviction

Constable Police

Police say a constable was shot and killed while serving an eviction notice.

A shooting occurred in the 3400 block of E. Lind Road in Tucson, Arizona. The resident being evicted killed the apartment manager and constable before turning the gun on himself, according to reports.

Several sources told KOLD-TV that the resident being evicted killed the apartment manager and constable before turning the gun on himself.

Officers at the scene found Martinez’s car parked outside the apartment complex with her purse and other items inside, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

An Oklahoma deputy sheriff shot and killed a fellow deputy in southwest Oklahoma City, just days after his mother tried to evict him.

Benjamin Plank, 35, surrendered after a high-speed chase that ended at the entrance to Tinker Air Force Base, roughly 10 miles away from where the original shooting took place.

The eviction moratorium which carried many people not paying their rents has expired and  with rising costs more people are expected to face eviction this year than any time in the prior seven.
