TN - Trooper Calvin Jenks, 24, shot to death, Tipton County, 6 Jan 2007
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State officials said Sunday they had arrested two teens they believed were responsible for the killing of a state trooper who was shot during a traffic stop in western Tennessee.
The 24-year-old trooper pulled over two men and was trying to get them out of the vehicle Saturday night when he was shot twice, according to footage from the patrol car's video camera. At least one bullet struck him in the head, said Mike Browning, a Department of Safety spokesman.
On Sunday, Alejandro Guana, 17, and Orlando Garcia, 19, were arrested without incident at a hotel near downtown Nashville, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jennifer Johnson said.
