The hunt for a gunman who fired at officers with a high-caliber rifle last night is underway. Currently, speculation is that it was a planned attack that specifically targeted police officers. This is what we have learned so far…
From the Daily Mail:
A message was posted around midnight on the scanner of the Columbus Police Dispatch saying: ‘Officers under attack from rifle fire.’
The gunman had fired at several buildings and cars and when officers arrived at the scene they too were targeted.
According to 10TV a SWAT team and a helicopter were also drafted in to search for the suspect at the junction of Windsor and Cleveland Avenues.
Nobody was injured and after searching for two hours, officers eventually called off the search.
But Columbus police tweeted this morning: ‘FELONIOUS ASSAULT ON POLICE OFFICERS: Please RT news release & help us identify the suspect(s). This has to stop.’
Columbus is the largest city in Ohio and has a population of 850,000 people, about 25 percent of whom are African-American.
Prayers going out to our men and women in blue. God protect them.
