Animal Control Agent Fatally Shot


By Paul Johnson

Galt, California (CNN) - A man suspected of killing an animal control officer in Sacramento County, California is in custody -- after an all-night standoff with police.
Investigators say the suspect had been evicted from his home...
and the officer went there to see about the animals left behind.
But when the officer and a bank official walked onto the property, they were met with a gunshot blast through the front door. "This is very tragic, you have an animal control officer here to safeguard this person's animals, this officer is in no way responsible for the eviction or plays an active role in it." The bank official wasn't seriously injured. Police say SWAT officers eventually took the suspect down in a surprise rush this morning.
