Man kills officer & commits suicide by cop after posting on Facebook & calling 911 [Video]

This breaks my heart. This young dirt bag called 911 twice with a fake report that he saw someone with a gun – that someone was him. The call was meant to lure an officer there where he could shoot him. Hummons shot Officer Sonny Kim and killed him, leaving his three children without a father and a widow behind. Hummons then shot at a probation officer and then a third officer, who thankfully took Hummons down and out. This definitely looks like suicide by cop and this guy was acting absolutely nuts. I don’t give a damn if he was having girlfriend problems or how upset he was – he had no right taking out an innocent cop like that, just so he could go out in a blaze of gun fire. What an evil last act.

From the Daily Mail:

A 21-year-old man from Cincinnati is suspected of fatally shooting a 27-year police veteran after posting on Facebook that he loved all of his friends and family and calling 911 on himself.

Haunting phone calls from Trepierre Hummons, 21, were released that hear the suspect twice report a man with a gun acting erratically and then described himself in the conversation.

The young man was said to have shot Officer Sonny Kim, 48, the first to respond to the call, before being killed in a gunfight with other officers, Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell told a news conference on Friday.

‘The suspect posted on Facebook just prior to the shooting and sent several text messages to friends indicating, or demonstrating, that he was planning suicide by cop,’ Blackwell said.

‘I love every last one of y’all to whoever has been in my life …. You’re the real mvp,’ Hummons posted before calling 911.

In the call the young man is heard speaking frantically about a ‘belligerent’ young man ‘in his early twenties’ with a gun in his waistband.

He describes himself as short and when asked about the man’s race he replies ‘a black man, of course’.

Hummons’s mother arrived on the scene right before Kim did, and tried to keep her son away from the police officer before the young man started firing, according to

Kim, who was wearing a bullet resistant vest, was shot multiple times, Blackwell said.

Hummons was said to have fired on a county probation officer who came to Kim’s aid and then wrestled Kim’s service weapon from him while he was lying wounded in the street.

The suspect’s mother reportedly attended to Kim as he lie on the ground dying.

Her son then used the officer’s weapon to fire at a third officer, Tom Sandmann, who ended the gunfight by shooting the young man, Blackwell said.

Kim was taken along with Hummons to a local hospital where both were pronounced dead.

Blackwell said Hummons’ mother told them he had been having recent troubles with a girlfriend and was not behaving like himself.

The incident comes at a time of increased attention on shooting incidents involving U.S. police.

Kim moved to the United States from South Korea in 1973 and grew up in Chicago. He had received 22 commendations since joining the Cincinnati police in 1988, Blackwell said.

He was not supposed to be working on Friday morning and was on overtime as Cincinnati works fight an uptick in crime.

The officer is survived by his wife Jessica and three sons Timothy, Joshua and Jacob.

He was a karate instructor for more than 20 years, according to USA Today, and gave an interview last year to the martial arts magazine The Shotokan Way.

‘In the USA, most of our police tactical training deals mainly with firearm encounters,” he said. ‘Having an assailant with a firearm will put you under some emotional and physiological duress.’

‘We lost one of our best police officers,’ Blackwell said. ‘Our hearts are broken,’ he added.

‘If you want to kill yourself, do it, but you can’t take one of our men with you,’ Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said. ‘There is a deep injustice when people believe they can shoot at police officers.’

‘He was so much more than how today ended, so much more, and could have been so much more, and it’s just unfortunate to see his life, you know, is gone at 21,’ his uncle Stephan told WCPO.

Hummons’s sister Nadia Everage, 22, said she was ‘in disbelief’ about the accusations made against her brother, who the family admitted had been ‘troubled’.

He had been an above average student, was on the wrestling team and had worked at Cincinnati amusement park King’s Island.

The morning of the incident Hummons, who lived with his girlfriend nearby the incident, had a sexual offense charge filed against him, according to Blackwell.

He had previously served three months in juvenile detention four years ago for a robbery, though his adult record only included traffic violations and a disorderly conduct charge.

The shooting happened in the Madisonville neighborhood, where a community vigil was planned for Friday night at a cultural center.

His family knew he was troubled. Just not how much, I guess. Now, a young man is dead who had his whole life ahead of him and even worse, an officer of 27 years who never did anything but help others and put his life on the line for them is now gone. The perp’s mom tried to keep her son away from Officer Kim, but failed. She held Kim while he died in the street. Kim shouldn’t have even been working that day, but fate called and his time had come. He was one of the best and bravest on the police force there and will be missed greatly. My heart goes out to his family. Another hero is murdered in cold blood by a whacked out criminal – Cincinnati seems to be on fire these days.
