    2 correctional officers shot at Fresno County Jail

    it's crazy out there and getting crazier.

    FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) - Two correctional officers were shot Saturday morning at the Fresno County Jail.

    Officer Juanita Davila is listed in critical, but stable condition. Officer Toamalama Scanlan is in critical condition. They were both shot in the head and neck area once.

    Davila is entering surgery for a broken jaw. Scanlan is in surgery for his critical injuries.

    Thong Vang, 37, of Fresno, has been identified as the shooter by the sheriff's office.
    He tried to enter the jail around 8:30 a.m. and was confronted by officers who insisted he wait his turn. Officer Davila tried to escort him out of the lobby, but Vang shot her. Officer Scanlan was shot shortly after. A correctional lieutenant shot back at Vang.

    Vang then ran to the back of the lobby and said he wanted to turn himself in. Vang was transported to the hospital with minor cuts and scrapes after the shooting.

    The correctional lieutenant who shot at Vang will be placed on paid administrative leave.

    "This guy is a prison convict. He's a parolee," Sheriff Margaret Mims said. "Maybe that's where he belongs."

    Officer Scanlan played football at Fresno State as a defensive lineman from 1995 to 1996.

    Vang was involved in a 1998 rape case in which gang members kidnapped and raped three girls between the ages of 12 and 14. He was sentenced for rape and served 16 years, according to Sheriff Mims. Vang was paroled in September 2014 and had complied with parole ever since.


    The jail is on lockdown until further notice. No visitors will be allowed.

    A witness told Fox26 that she was in the bathroom at the time of the shooting. She said that she barricaded herself inside the restroom.

        OR spend only 16 years in prison for raping 3 girls? He should have been locked in a hole forever.
        Know your rights/Refuse peacefully to consent to a search /Ask if you are free to go or are being detained/Even if you are not doing anything wrong the 4th Amendment protects you against unreasonable searches/Never say anything to law enforcement even if you think it will help you/If questioned you should clearly and unequivocally request that you would like to have an attorney present and defer any questions until then/Never go to prison because you are afraid to go to jail.

          Anyone know if this mutt is a U.S. citizen? In the land of fruits and nuts being a pedophile isn't an automatic eviction from this country and they would love to keep that fact from us.
