Democrat War on Police Continues
Two New Orleans officers were ambushed while in their car. A man in a pedicab attacked them. One officer, a 16-year veteran, sustained minor wounds from flying glass. The other was shot in the cheek just under his eye and the bullet is lodged in his skull. He is in serious but stable condition, according to WWNO.
This happened in broad daylight at about 4:30 pm.
The police were in a marked cruiser on a routine patrol when they crossed through intersections going in different directions,” when several shots rang out, NOPD Superintendent Shaun said. “This is a dark day for our officers.”
The wounded officer, who has been with the force for four years, was able to walk into the hospital holding his cheek and is listed in serious but stable condition.
The other officer, a 16-year veteran of the department, only had minor wounds on his arm from shards of glass. Neither of the officers returned fire on the suspect.
The suspected gunman was arrested shortly after and taken to a hospital for evaluation, as he appeared to “be under some sort of medical condition,” the report stated.
Police also said there was “no interaction” between the shooter and police prior to the shooting.
NOLA.com reported a witness saying that she heard the suspected shooter screaming and saw him flailing and trying to bite the first responders who were putting him into the ambulance after he was arrested.
Police did not reveal the suspect’s identity, whether he would be taken to jail after being discharged from the hospital or what charges he might be facing.
