UPDATE: 36-year-old Jeremy Henwood, a four-year veteran of the San Diego Police Department, died Sunday, a day after being shot while sitting in his patrol car at a San Diego intersection ,reports San Diego’s police chief Chief William Lansdowne …
A man with a shotgun critically wounded a San Diego police officer in an apparent unprovoked attack,Saturday evening ,in City Heights by a suspect who may have committed another shooting earlier in the day, report San Diego police.(SOURCE)
The surprise shotgun attack happened ,according to reports in the media, 5:30 p.m. in San Diego’s City Heights area on the eastern part of the city. The Police officer stopped at a red light and pulled up to a black Audi that was involved in a shooting incident at an “In-N-Out” burger store about two hours earlier,14 miles away, in the El Cajon area.(ABC)
Local police had chased the vehicle on the freeway, however, as the speed of the fleeing car reached above 100 mph, the chase was abandoned and the suspect was left to flee, and continue his menacing reign of crime on the unsuspecting public.
..maybe they would have been better off just shooting this idiot???
What happened next was like a scene from “Spiderman” when Peter Parker allowed a robber to flee, when he could have easily stopped him, and that same robber went on to kill his Uncle Ben,who was raising him, and waiting to pick him up from the “library”.(Source)
That same suspect who got away from the cops, rolled up on the unsuspecting officer in that black Audi, and aimed his shotgun out the window of his car, and shot the officer in the head!!!
..How cruel can you be???The cop was doing nothing???...and we need all the cops in San Diego we can get.They do not get paid at the level of their counterparts in other large cities, and they definitely do not get compensated for this level of heinous behavior!!!
“As far as we know, it was totally unprovoked,” Police Capt. Jim Collins said in a statement to the media.
“He was not attempting to stop the suspect vehicle. He had no idea that was the suspect vehicle.”
He was basically ambushed, and shot from behind by a coward…
Luckily for the community at large,…The cold-blooded shooting of the officer led police to track down the vehicle to a nearby apartment, a gun battle ensued and one suspect was fatally shot.(Technorati)
…thank God for that!!!
The wounded officer was taken to a nearby hospital,where he is fighting for his life, but it is unclear what his condition is.
Police shot and killed one of the gunmen while another suspect exchanged fire with police before barricaded himself in a nearby apartment complex, reminiscent of the deadly gun battle in Skyline at the Meadowbrook apartments, that took the life of respected 17 year veteran SDPD officer Christopher Wilson in October, of 2010.
