Natt til onsdag ble to politimenn skutt og drept i Des Moines, Iowa. Det ser ut som et bakholdsangrep. – Noen der ute dreper politi, sa politisjefen Paul Parizek.

“In all appearances it looks just like that, that these officers were ambushed,” he said. “It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these cowards and the officers they shot in their cars.”

Des Moines police said in a news release earlier that officers responded to a report of shots fired shortly after 1 a.m. and the first officers to arrive on scene found an Urbandale officer wounded.

Des Moines police officers responded to assist and about 25 minutes later a Des Moines officer had been shot at an intersection about two blocks away.

Both officers died from their injuries sustained in the shootings.

“There’s somebody out there shooting police. There is a clear and present danger to police officers right now,” Parizek said.
