(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.

Brandon's mom was divorced from his father and when she came home one day, she found him with his face blackened holding an ax and threatening her to accept a divorce settlement (a divorce that had occurred several years prior). This kid AND his girlfriend who was from England, by the way, had both alcohol and drug problems big time. Too bad the officer had to die.

Alexandria Hollinghurst, 17 is just too cute to commit suicide, I believe she was murdered. Brandon Goode, 18 on the other hand, most likely killed both the cop and her. Being that he was arrested last month on drugs and alcohol charges, and probably didn't want to go back to jail. He shot the cop, she freaked out, he shot her, then did himself. Another sad story of pretty girl goes for 'bad boy'.
