Teen Wanted in Gay Bar Rampage Is Caught

By NOAH TRISTER, Associated Press Writer

GASSVILLE, Ark. - A teenager suspected of a hatchet-and-gun attack in a
Massachusetts gay bar shot and killed a small-town police officer and
the teen's passenger before he was critically wounded in a gun battle
with police Saturday, authorities said.

Jacob D. Robida, 18, was shot twice in the head, and "it doesn't look
good right now," said Massachusetts prosecutor Paul Walsh Jr.

Walsh said the teen shot Officer Jim Sell, 56, twice during a traffic
stop in this northern Arkansas town.

About 25 miles away, Robida sped over spike strips set out by state
troopers but continued to drive with two punctured tires into downtown
Norfork. Robida's car then careened into several parked vehicles to
avoid a police barricade.

"When he wrecked he started firing at our officer and a state police
officer, and the officers returned fire," said Baxter County Sheriff
John Montgomery.

The teen shot the woman in the car with him before he was wounded in the
shootout with police, Walsh said. State police wouldn't confirm Walsh's
account and said ballistics tests would determine how the woman died.
