Wife says she tried to warn police before deadly shooting

The wife of a man who killed two Southern California police officers Tuesday in a shootout told a television station that her husband had previously attacked her and she warned the officers that he had a gun inside a suburban Los Angeles motel. The gunman, identified as Justin William Flores, was shot and killed at the scene. “I am so deeply sorry, my deepest condolences for saving me, I’m so, so, so sorry,” Diana Flores tearfully told the TV station.
