US Marshal Christopher David Hill killed, officer wounded while serving warrant in Pennsylvania



This is terrible. 
I can't recall a marshal getting killed in a while.  At least the shooter was taken down.   

ABC News reports a 45-year-old U.S. Marshal was shot and killed Thursday morning as he and other officers were ambushed by gunfire while trying to serve a warrant to a woman in Pennsylvania's capital. 

Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher David Hill, a married father of two and an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, was part of a fugitive task force that was fired upon while executing a warrant for the arrest of Shayla Lynette Towles Pierce, wanted by Harrisburg police on suspicion of illegal possession of a firearm, simple assault and making terrorist threat offenses, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
