Two Miami-Dade Officers were laid to rest at the same time that two more Florida officers were killed in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The two officers were ambushed and killed this Monday morning, 01/24/2011, in very similar circumstances, while attempting to serve an arrest warrant on Hydra Lacy Jr, 39, wanted for aggravated battery.

A third officer, a deputy U.S. Marshal, was also at the scene and shot twice, but is doing well, said Chief Deputy U.S. Marshall Tom Fignik.

The apparent assailant was found dead after police used a backhoe to tear through the attic of his house. More than 150 gunshots were exchanged during the confrontation.

Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz, 39, with the department for 12 years is survived by his wife and 3 children ages 5, 8, and 12.

Sgt. Tom Baitinger, 41, with the department for 15 years is survived by his wife.
