Two policemen and a suspect killed in California

Two police officers and a suspect were killed at night in El Monte, Southern California.
El Monte police assume it is a response to a possible stabbing incident at the Siesta Inn, and they were shot at upon arrival. The two policemen were then taken to the hospital, where they died of their injuries.
Gun violence in the United States is under scrutiny after two massacres last month, one at an elementary school in Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers, and another at a New York supermarket that killed 10 people.
