FROM FOX NEWS: The shootings occurred within minutes of each other in Des Moines. One Des Moines police officer and another from the suburb of Urbandale were found in their bullet-riddled cruisers, Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek said.
“There’s somebody out there shooting police. There is a clear and present danger to police officers right now,” he said.
“In all appearances it looks just like that, that these officers were ambushed,” Parizek said.
Neither police officer was identified by officials and– as of a 5 a.m.– police were still notifying family members. Parizek said their names and details about their service would be released later Wednesday.
