911 calls: Aiken suspect was armed with cop's gun
Thursday, March 22, 2012

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The man suspected of slaying a South Carolina police officer was armed with her gun as he led authorities on a car chase that exceeded speeds of 110 mph.

That's according to dozens of 911 calls, radio traffic and dispatcher recordings obtained by The Associated Press Wednesday under an open records request.

The calls began pouring in after the January 28 shooting of Master Cpl. Sandy Rogers. The second Aiken officer killed on the job since December, Rogers was the first female officer killed in the line of duty in South Carolina history.

Rogers was shot responding to a suspicious activity call in an Aiken neighborhood. Police say 26-year-old Joshua Tremaine Jones opened fire on Rogers hours after allegedly gunning down his girlfriend in Augusta, Ga.
