One police officer killed, two wounded in Alabama last night…

A police officer in Alabama was killed last night and two officers were wounded when responding to a domestic call in Alabama. Here’s a statement from the coroner’s office:

The following information was released in a Monday morning press statement from Lee County Coroner Bill Harris:

“At approximately 10:40 PM Sunday night, Auburn Police responded to a domestic disturbance call in a mobile home park in the 3000 block of Wire Road.

“When officers arrived a suspect opened fire on the officers, striking three of them. Two of the officers suffered critical injuries and one suffered non-life threatening injuries.

“One officer was air lifted to a Columbus, GA hospital. The other two were transported via ground ambulance to East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika where one of those officers died from his injuries.

“The names of the officers are not being released at this time pending notification of all family members and all of the police family…”

The perp who shot these cops was on the run all night but officers took him into custody this morning.



According to the police chief the two wounded officers are expected to recover:

“Auburn Police Chief Paul Register stated during an early morning news conference that the two injured law enforcement officers are expected to recover.”

Being a police officer in America has never been more dangerous than it is now.

And honestly, I don’t know whether this domestic call was legit or whether it was an ambush so this a-hole could try and kill police officers.

Either way these three police officers put their lives on the line for the city of Auburn and unfortunately one of them sacrificed everything. Our condolences to the family of this hero officer.

Automatic death penalty for killers of our police! Enough is enough!

or whether it was an ambush so this a-hole could try and kill police officers.

That’s a bit of a reach Scoop. It’s late night in the trailer park. I thought this part was interesting:

“Wilkes [a military veteran] is a white male, 6’4”, 215 pounds, and is believed to be a serious risk to the public. Wilkes was last seen wearing camo clothing with body armor and a helmet at Arrow Head Trailer Part in Auburn, Alabama around 11:30 pm on May 19, 2019.

The reports say that as soon as the cops were on scene he loosed six rapid rounds and fled. My guess is that we’ve got a bad situation with the missus that escalated when the dude panicked upon seeing the cops. I’d also speculate (admittedly, pure conjecture) that there’s a bit of untreated PTSD going on here.

I don’t agree with the death penalty. The State should not be in the business of intentionally killing its citizens under any circumstances.

When someone takes the life of an innocent citizen, I am for taking their lives. They do not deserve to be fed and clothed for the rest of their lives at my expense. When you kill, you take ever opportunity for the victim away from them. They never get to enjoy life again with family and friends. Time to make it quick and done!

This is a good example of where the death penalty should be applied if the perp is convicted of capital murder (Wash Post is reporting he was charged with capital murder).

When thugs attack police officers, district attorneys, and judges , they are attacking the system, not just the individual. They are attacking civil order and it calls for the most severe punishment society can mete out.

I agree and some cases are so blatant that the punishment should be expedited. The average wait for the death penalty to be carried out is too long in my opinion. The thugs don’t give their victims any spare time, so we should return the favor and do it expeditiously.

Why would you post the NYC PD shield for an incident involving an LEA in Alabama?

That’s a nicer looking shield than the one for NYC. Just saying. Sometimes people just want to find something to complain about I guess.

As a grad of Auburn University, this was especially shocking news to hear first thing this morning. Auburn, Alabama is a small college town and things like this tragedy just don’t happen there. But it did and it’s a reminder that our men and women in Blue put their lives on the line every day. And yes, “thoughts and prayers” to the slain officer’s family and the two other officers who were wounded.
I’m especially thankful that the killer has been captured and is no longer a threat.

This should never happen. EVIL. Praying for these men who took an oath to Protect and Serve their community, whatever the cost. For the family of the fallen hero, I pray for strength in the days ahead as they mourn their loss. For those surviving I pray for a full and miraculous healing of body, mind and soul. For the rest of the men and women in blue throughout our nation, I pray Psalm 91 over them daily. May they find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1-16 (911) 1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a] 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with… Read more »

Most people I talk to don’t even realize that in July, 2016 a Black Lives Matter whacko assassinated 5 Dallas police officers and wounded 9 others in a sniper fire attack from building rooftops during a BLM protest.

This is how far the MSM is willing to go to cover for their leftist masters – they literally made sure that the mass killing of Dallas police was not tied to BLM, even though the assassin was an active BLM member and it was during a BLM protest.

TomNewman64TomNewman64 I’m sure that Scoop covered that one, but I don’t recall it offhand. It’s a sad state of affairs that these killings have become so commonplace that they don’t register.

We had 20 city blocks shut down in downtown Dallas for several weeks as the shooter’s handiwork was investigated. Can you imagine how hard it must have been for the MSM to refuse to report on it?

TomNewman64TomNewman64 Even the local news? There was just a grisly murder in Chicago last week, a pregnant woman was kidnapped, murdered and her near term baby removed. I was surprised not to hear it on the national news.

I remember it. I also remember the NFL refusing allowing the Dallas Cowboys to place a “In Memory” sticker on their helmets.

Avatarjoyfulgiver Interesting, especially considering that the National Felons League allows protest kneeling.
