    this happened right down the road from me, and it goes further than that, the kids dad has a brother who works with and is friends with my parents.

    really sad news, but i figured it would end up the way it did. even making it to national news wasn't surprising. i feel really bad for the family, it's saturating the news here, and now it's national. fuck the media.

    r.i.p. to both of the victims.


    Teen found dead after standoff
    Officer killed in confrontation
    Saturday, March 13, 2004 Posted: 4:44 PM EST (2144 GMT)

    LENOIR CITY, Tennessee (AP) -- The teenage son of a prosecutor killed a sheriff's deputy and barricaded himself in his home before he was found dead inside Saturday with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot to the head, officials said.

    Michael Harvey, 16, was found in an upstairs bedroom of his lakeside home, said Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider. He said the teenager had been dead for up to 20 hours.

    Harvey fired on SWAT team officers Friday afternoon from the home, where he had semiautomatic weapons with multiple 30-round magazines. No shots were fired after that, authorities said.

    "As hard as we worked to make contact and as patient as we were, we were hoping for a different resolution," Guider said.

    Harvey's father, Frank Harvey, is an assistant district attorney for Loudon County.

    The confrontation started Friday morning when officers went to investigate a domestic violence complaint from the boy's mother, who had fled to a neighbor's house. She allegedly was attacked with a pipe when she refused to let the boy drive to school after drinking the night before.

    The first officer to arrive, Deputy Jason Scott, was fatally shot as he stepped out of his car, Guider said. He was shot four times, and a second officer retreated under fire and called for backup.

    "Deputies answered the call not knowing there were any weapons in the house," Guider said.

    Sheriff Tim Guider cries as he details the ambush killing of one of his officers, Jason Scott.
    A SWAT team once made it into the garage before turning back, and robots sent into the house were blocked by obstacles. Four officers suffered minor injuries from debris when the teenager shot at them as they hid behind a woodpile.

    Officers fired tear gas into the house but got no response, and the teen did not answer calls or efforts to contact him over loudspeakers. Some of Harvey's relatives went to the scene trying to coax him into coming out, a spokeswoman for the Loudon County sheriff's department said early Saturday.

    The boy's mother was treated at a local hospital and released.

    Scott, 24, was a three-year veteran of the department whose wife is expecting their first child. Through tears, Guider described him as "a wonderful young man, very lively, very friendly, very outgoing."

    Ed Sullivan, Harvey's youth minister at United Church of Christ Church of the Savior in Knoxville, told The Knoxville News Sentinel that the teen slit his wrists last fall and spent some time in Peninsula Hospital, a mental health facility.

    Still, Sullivan said he was shocked. "He's a quiet kid, a gentle kid," Sullivan said.

    nah, the d.a. dad wasn't beating the wife, they are christians and all nice and whatnot.

    something came out in the news recently about this gun collection pops had...filled with semi-autos and whatnot. the gun the kid was using was one of his dads sks rifles. fuuuuuunnnnyyyyy! fuckin rednecks and their guns.

    anyway, when asked about the guns by the police, d.a. dad said that the kid had more weapons and ammo than the 150 cops that were surrounding his house.

    whooopty motherfuckin' doo!

    also, the kid had been "training" with some friends out in the woods...blasting bottles and whatnot. coulda been another columbine high thing. that one cop may have made the ultimate sacrifice for the betterment of the area. who knows.
