Springfield Cops Take a Breather After Gun Fight

Five Springfield police officers involved in a Wednesday morning shootout that killed a local man are on paid leave for a week.  MassLive reports the five had a debriefing session Wednesday and will undergo counseling before they return to work.  The gun battle resulted in the death of 44 year old Louis Squires, who allegedly fired at police with a shotgun after his ex-girlfriend vandalized his car.
