ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. A 16-year-old who wasarrested and accused of killinga St. Petersburg police officermade his first appearance incourt today and was orderedheld without bail.Officer David Crawfordwas shot multiple timesMonday night while investi-gating a report of a prowlerin a neighborhood just southof Tropicana Field where theTampa Bay Rays play base-ball. Crawford was the thirdSt. Petersburg officer to diein the line of duty in the lastmonth.The teen was arrested lateTuesday night following anintense manhunt.“When he did make theadmission on tape for us atthe end of the day, it wasquite apparent that he wasremorseful in his actions,”Police Chief Chuck Harmonsaid during a late night newsconference. “He cried.”The teen’s father made atearful apology to the com-munity while in the court-room during the hearing, courtspokesman Ron Stuart said.Prosecutors will now deter-mine whether the accused teenshould be tried as an adult.The Associated Press doesnot usually identify juvenilesuntil they are charged in adultcourt.The teen had a prior juve-nile criminal record, but thepolice chief did not givedetails.The suspect was takento a juvenile lockup and hisparents were cooperating, thechief said. Police did not havea motive except that therewas some exchange betweenthe teen and officer, Harmonsaid.“It breaks my heart,” hesaid. “When you have some-thing like this happen, youdon’t expect this type of con-frontation between a 16-year-old and a police officer to endlike this.”The suspect is a student inthe Pinellas County Schools,but Harmon wouldn’t saywhich school. It wasn’t clearhow the boy obtained the gun,Harmon said.Monday night’s shootinghappened when officers werechecking out the prowler calland Crawford, 46, spotted thesuspect and got out of his car.At 10:37 p.m., another offi-cer, Donald J. Ziglar, reportedan exchange of gunfire andtold dispatchers an officer wasdown, police said.Ziglar found Crawfordlying on the pavement nearhis cruiser, shot at close range,police said. Crawford was notwearing a bullet proof vest.Crawford, who was mar-ried, eligible for retirement andthe father of an adult daugh-ter, was pronounced dead at ahospital. Officers saluted thevan that carried his body tothe medical examiner’s officeTuesday morning. Crawford,who loved horses, lived in arural community north of St.Petersburg.St. Petersburg Mayor BillFoster said the city will now beable to bury officer Crawfordand have some closure butresidents, officers and parentsmust also learn why a teenagerwas carrying a handgun.“We as a community needto stand up and do a betterjob,” Foster said.

International outrage mount-ed after Gadhafi on Tuesdaywent on state TV and in a fist-pounding speech called on hissupporters to take to the streetsto fight protesters. Gadhafi’sretaliation has already been theharshest in the Arab world tothe wave of anti-governmentprotests sweeping the MiddleEast.Italy’s Foreign MinisterFranco Frattini said estimatesof some 1,000 people killedin the violence in Libya were“credible,” although he stressedinformation about casualtieswas incomplete. The NewYork-based Human RightsWatch has put the death tollat nearly 300, according to apartial count.Gadhafi’s speech appearedto have brought out a heavyforce of supporters and mili-tiamen that largely preventedmajor protests in the capi-tal Tuesday night or today.Through the night, gunfire washeard, said one woman wholives near downtown.“Mercenaries are every-where with weapons. You can’topen a window or door. Snipershunt people,” she said. “We areunder siege, at the mercy of aman who is not a Muslim.”During the day today,more gunfire was heard nearGadhafi’s residence, but inmany parts of the city of 2 mil-lion residents were venturingout to stores, some residentssaid. The government sent outtext messages urging people togo back to their jobs, aiming toshow that life was returning tonormal. The residents spoke oncondition of anonymity for fearof retaliation.But Libya’s upheaval, justover a week old, has shatteredthe hold of Gadhafi’s regimeacross much of the country.Protesters claim to hold townsand cities along nearly the entireeastern half of the 1,000-mileMediterranean coastline, fromthe Egyptian border. In parts,they have set up their own jury-rigged self-administrations.At the Egyptian border,guards had fled, and localtribal elders have formed localcommittees to take their place.“Welcome to the new Libya,”a graffiti spray-painted at thecrossing proclaimed. FawzyIgnashy, a former soldier, nowin civilian clothes at the border,said that early in the protests,some commanders orderedtroops to fire on protesters, butthen tribal leaders stepped inand ordered them to stop.“They did because theywere from here. So the officersfled,” he said.A defense committee of local residents was even guard-ing one of Gadhafi’s oncehighly secretive anti-aircraftmissile bases outside the city of Tobruk. “This is the first timeI’ve seen missiles like these upclose,” admitted Abdelsalamal-Gedani, one of the guards,dressed in an overcoat and car-rying a Kalashnikov automaticrifle.Protesters have claimedcontrol all the way to thecity of Ajdabiya, about 480miles (800 kilometers) east of Tripoli, encroaching on the keyoil fields around the Gulf of Sidra.That has left Gadhafi’spower centered around Tripoli,in the far west and parts of the country’s center. But thatappeared to be weakening inparts.Dorothy L. Owens, 86,of Lima and formerly of Spencerville, died at 4:30 a.m.Today at Van Wert HospiceCenter.Funeral arrangementsare incomplete at ThomasE. Bayliff Funeral Home,Spencerville.
