Gunman arrested after killing two California deputies, injuring another

**A gunman who allegedly killed two sheriff’s deputies and wounded another officer and a bystander in the Sacramento County area has been arrested, a spokeswoman for the Placer County sheriff said Friday night.

Spokeswoman Dena Erwin said 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez, who also allegedly tried to carjack two vehicles, was taken alive Friday afternoon from a home in Auburn after an initial shooting hours earlier in a Sacramento commercial area. **

With all the news stories attacking cops I thought it proper to have one showing the selfless heroism that law enforcement exhibit everyday.

Suspect in killing of Northern California deputies was previously deported, authorities say

I am sure a lot of people are amazed that he was taken alive. Now he will get to spend the rest of his life in California.
