Wife of cop killer expresses sympathy to fallen officers, families

ST. PETERSBURG — The wife of the man who fatally shot two St. Petersburg police officers expressed her sympathy Tuesday for the slain officers and their families.

"I'm sorry this had to happen," Christine Lacy said in a brief comment to Bay News 9. It was the first public statement she had made about the incident, and she declined further comment.

Christine Lacy owned the home at 3734 28th Ave. S where the shootings happened.

The home was destroyed during a standoff with Hydra Lacy Jr. It was later razed, and the rubble was taken away to be examined.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
