Memphis Cop, Dallas Man Killed in Separate Drug War Incidents

by Phillip Smith

A Memphis police officer was shot and killed early Friday morning during a marijuana raid, and, hours later, a Dallas man was shot and killed by police investigating a drug complaint. Memphis Police Officer Martoiya Lang and the as yet unidentified Dallas man become the 63rd and 64th persons to die in US domestic drug law enforcement operations so far this year.

In Memphis, according to the Associated Press, Lang was part of an organized crime unit serving a "drug-related search warrant" when a person in the house opened fire, striking Lang and Officer William Vrooman. Lang died of her injuries, while Vrooman, who was struck multiple times, was in stable condition at a local hospital.

Police returned fire, critically wounding the shooter, who was later identified as Treveno Campbell, 21. He has now been charged with one count of first degree murder and one count of attempted murder. A second man in the house, Willie Braddock, 26, was charged with possession of marijuana and intent to distribute.

In Dallas, according to KDFW Fox 4 News, police had received a complaint about drug activity at an Oak Cliff apartment complex and pulled over two men in a "suspicious" vehicle in the apartment parking lot. Police said a fight broke out between one of the men and an officer, and when that man pulled out a gun, a police officer opened fire and killed him.

Police have not released the names of any of the parties involved.

68184 In case people don't know it,, Memphis has one of the most corrupt and abusive police force in the country. Memphis is a city where if a citizen reports police abuse, they get threatened with retaliation from the head cop himself.

It's not the criminals in Memphis that are likely to kill you, though that can surely happen. (race is a BIG issue in Memphis) It's the cops you have to watch out for.(race is a BIG issue)
