This photo released by Springfield Police Department shows a booking photo of Tamik J. Kirkland, 24. Kirkland, an escaped convict is in critical condition after a shootout with Massachusetts police in which the officers were saved from major injury by their body armor. Law enforcement officials said Tamik Kirkland burst from a car trunk Saturday and opened fire on a state trooper and a Springfield police officer who'd pulled over the car. Police say Kirkland was hit several times when police fired back. Authorities had been looking for the 25-year-old Kirkland since he escaped Monday from a minimum security prison where he'd been serving time on weapons convictions. less
