In the past several weeks, there have been several major attacks on police officers; Dallas, Baton Rouge, and most recently Kansas City have all experienced tragic attacks on officers.
In Columbus, Ohio, there was another attempted ambush on police officers.
Bearing Arms reported:
Based upon reports for various media sources, the would-be cop-killer appears to have randomly fired shots into local businesses and vehicles to lure police into the area, and then engaged officers as they arrived on the scene. Fortunately for the responding officers, the suspect was unable to make any hits.
He then fled the scene, but was soon spotted and boxed in by three police armored cars and SWAT officers behind a heavy wheeled shield.
The suspect surrendered after a lengthy standoff and was taken into custody.
Luckily, no one was killed or wounded at the scene. Nonetheless, the attempt took place.
The streets are becoming more and more dangerous for police officers every day. It does not appear to be getting better any time soon. But hopefully communities will stand up to this senseless murder and violence.
Some have, and more should follow suit so that relations between citizens and police can be healed and not further damaged.
