Ambush in Minnesota
They're still out there, crazy people willing to kill you because of the uniform you wear:
- Minneapolis police arrested a 43-year-old man Saturday after the early morning wounding of an officer who investigators believe was shot because he was a member of the police force.
The man was arrested on suspicion of violating his probation, burglary and aggravated domestic assault, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Any connection to the shooting early Saturday is still under investigation, assistant police chief Matt Clark said at an afternoon news conference.
According to police, the officer and his partner had just handled a burglary and domestic assault call and were standing by their squad car at around 5 a.m. when someone shot the officer. His partner drove him to a hospital, where he was in fair condition Saturday afternoon, Clark said.
Not much you can do against an ambush like that, but a plan to get a wounded partner to a hospital if the situation permits it is probably wise.
