(Newser) – A Florida police officer was fatally shot when he encountered two people he described as suspicious walking on the street early Saturday—and the male and female suspects then apparently committed suicide about a block away from the scene. Police say Officer Robert German called for backup, and by the time two other officers arrived at the scene, German was alive but lying on the road; the 31-year-old later died at a hospital. The responding officers heard shots fired in the distance and found the suspects' bodies; they are said to have been in their late teens or early 20s.
