The officers arrived at Mr. Ramquist's rental home on North Shore Drive, north of Lake Bonham, around 11:30 a.m. The suspect confirmed he was the person named in the warrant and invited the officers into the brick home, Tackett said. But, once inside, he became less cooperative and retreated into a bedroom for a moment, Tackett said. When he came back out of it, he was carrying a gun, which he allegedly pointed at the officers.This seems to happen a lot, so much so they've invented a cute expression to describe it: suicide by cop. But when we talk about 14,000 murders a year with guns and 16,000 suicides a year with guns, or whatever the latest numbers are, where do we put these "suicide by cop" cases? Maybe we need another category. Maybe the gun deaths are even worse than we thought.
