3 Maryland officers ambushed & shot


Three Maryland police officers were “ambushed” and shot while responding to a call Sunday evening, authorities said.

Prince George’s County police were responding to a reported home invasion, Interim Police Chief Hector Velez said.

“Within minutes they arrived at the scene, and within seconds they came under gunfire,” Velez told reporters outside Prince George’s Hospital Center.

“They were ambushed.”

Officers returned gunfire and took two men into custody unharmed, police said. The injured officers were expected to recover.

Velez said the three officers sustained varying degrees of injuries–one was struck in the chest and suffered injuries to an arm and a leg; another officer was shot in the back; the third officer was wounded in the foot.

The officers shot in the chest and the back were saved by their bullet-proof vests, Velez said. He also said officers provided self care before being rushed to a hospital for treatment. One officer needed surgery as of Sunday night.

Velez said the three officers were in “good spirits” and hoped to return to work soon.

If Democrats keep supporting the anti-police agenda, it will get a lot worse.

We need a color count to understand the spin angle here.

Preparing the propaganda script about how the shooters are “heroes of the people’s revolutionary guard in the war against the Republican racist pig police.”
