It didn't appear that there are any times aired to determine how long he's been calling for help.
To make a VERY long story short... the PD did exactly the right thing. The first arriving officer was met with rifle fire in the dark-- out in the open. The officer engaged (shot at) the male, but was met with return fire. The officer had to retreat a little for cover. The incoming officers established a perimeter while an active shooter team could be created because the f*ckstain was behind a natural berm ACROSS from the house on fire. (He set an ambush for the first responders.) Webster and Irondequoit PD's are town PD's with only a few cars on during the night shift.
To "rush in" for the fallen firefighters would have just added another victim. The douche with a rifle was shooting his victims within a 100'. We're lucky the 2 injured survived.
Sorry I'm a bit blunt, but I've known (knew) Chip for 10+yrs both personally and professionally. There is NOTHING that could have been done differently to change the outcome, other than the d!ckbag not being there to begin with.
