Hours after returning from a funeral for state troopers killed in last week's rampage by a gunman, a rookie police officer was killed in a shootout Sunday. Two suspects were arrested after a lengthy highway pursuit and a gun battle with another officer. Officer Jeremy Charron, 24, was shot shortly before 5 a.m., after he stopped a car along a rural road in Epsom, a town of about 3,700 people where he was one of four full-time officers. The suspects were identified as Gordon E.
