Thoughts and prayers to Oakland P.D. and the families of these four brave men
Proof that there is no such thing as “a routine traffic stop” for our brave police officers.
Fourth Oakland police officer dies after shootings
A fourth Oakland, California, police officer has died as a result of shootings that happened Saturday, a police spokesman said Sunday.
John Hege, 41, was pronounced dead about noon Sunday at Highland Hospital, Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said. Hege was on life support Saturday, police said.
Hege was the fourth officer to die after a man being pulled over in a traffic stop opened fire and then battled SWAT officers at a nearby building Saturday, police said.
