    FL -Two Tampa PD officers shot to death during routine traffic stop

    Link to News article.

    This is my first time starting a thread, so please correct me if I do anything wrong.

    I woke up this morning to this horrible news. What is going on in this world.

    Two Tampa police officers were shot during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.

    One officer, Jeffrey Kocab, died hours after the shooting. The other officer, David Curtis, was on life support briefly during the morning but has died as well.

    Police are looking for two people who they described as persons of interest. Dontae Rashawn Morris, 24, and Cortnee Nicole Brantley, 22.

    Currently, officers are searching near the area of Highway 41 and Palm River Road.

    There are reports that officers have found the car, a red Camry, that Morris and Brantley were in.

    New information

    They found the woman, still looking for the man.

    Police have found the woman involved in the shooting deaths of two Tampa police officers.

    A tip led police to the Bristol Bay Apartment Complex at Bristol Bay Way in Tampa, which is where they found 22-year-old Cortnee Nicole Brantley. Police had said Brantley was a person of interest in the case.

    Police are still searching for Dontae Rashawn Morris, 24, who they said shot and killed the officers during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.

    God bless Officer Curtis

    God bless Officer Kocab

    God bless their families and especially Officer Kocab's little baby who will never know her father.

    May justice be served.
    Rest in Peace

    I just read in the news that Officer Kocab grew up very near where I live. So sad. Prayers for both officer's families and loved ones. Senseless. I hope they catch this creep soon.

    ... and she has been released!

    That is surprising.

    http://www.baynews9.com/article/news...track-him-down

    "I wouldn't describe her as cooperative but we were able to get some information out of her," Castor said.

    She said that the investigation is currently focused on finding Morris, but that she understands why the public is upset about Brantley's release.

    "I understand that level of frustration," she said. "But the community needs to trust in the ability of the Tampa Police Department."

    The chief has confirmed Brantley was the driver and Morris was a passenger.
