News 5 just said it belonged to a Ohio Church, and had not been reported stolen.

Andrew has the 4 pm slot now. He’s on air right now. So he is safe.

One of the reports says the van is linked to a church and the church is linked to a white supremacist group.

Guess we have to wait and see.

We can be sure that the Tea Party will be blamed.

Yep

Wilmington News Journal, Wilmington OH:

Occupants of a van registered to the House of God's Prayer in New Vienna were involved in a shootout Thursday afternoon in West Memphis, Ark. Two police officers were killed.

According to The Associated Press, the police officers had pulled over the van along Interstate 40. After the officers were shot, the suspects fled the scene. A short time later, the suspects were killed in a separate shootout with a county sheriff and a deputy, both of whom were wounded. Names and addresses of the suspects have not yet been released. Colonel Brian Prickett, chief deputy with the Clinton County Sheriff's Office, said the van is registered to a former white supremacist church in New Vienna that has been closed for many years.

WAFF-TV

According to vehicle registration records, the 1994 Plymouth driven by the suspects is owned by an Ohio church - the House of God's Prayer in New Vienna, Ohio. Action News 5's attempts to reach someone from the church were unsuccessful Thursday. A postal worker in New Vienna said the church rents property in the town, but does not hold services.

Bolo was sent out via ASP scanner (which I monitor) and they were looking for a Hispanic male at or near the shooting scene of the 1st shootout. Don’t know what happened,but that turned out to be a false alarm when the shootout happened at Wal-Mart soon after. Still don’t know the race of the cop killers. I-40 is a huge drug corridor for illegals from Dallas to Atlanta and Dallas to Chicago via I30. More drug busts on I40 than any other strech if those stats are still kept and current.
