Another source told W*USA reporter Stacey Cohan that the shooting behind the Sully police station might have been an ambush against police officers.

Kinda obvious don't you think?

This is about 1/4 mile away from where my husband works!!!

Luckily, he is on his way home. Traffic was a mess and he didn't know why... now we know why.

Could this be terrorism? No, why would they target police officers. They would target the Metro-subway.

Could it have been a brave diversion for some larger crime - that won't come to light until tomorrow? Who knows?

I am monitoring scanner users posts from Va.

I once heard of a crime the day after an episode of some Network show.

San Antonio, late 90's., same M.O.

All of us are wondering about the motive. Maybe a terrorist attack like jocon suggests. Perhaps a revenge attack for someone in a gang who was shot or arrested. Or perhaps this was a "diversionary" attack to keep the police busy while something was taking place elsewhere.

IIRC MS-13 threatened to kill Fairfax police officers a few months back, maybe last summer. Sounds like the open border rallies may have heated them up.

How about sending out trash trucks to dispose of the garbage...

Yeah, had the same thoughts....

The initial story suggests that the killers were very brave. There is definitely a huge story behind this...

It's unlike when a ex-con goes after a prosecutor or judge, silently, undetected.

per the Fox News Ticker they are looking for a white guy named (get this) Michael Kennedy. No age given but like the other poster said, in cammo. Of course, I guess you could ditch those clothes easily enough and just have other stuff on underneath. They didn't give any age or description beyond his race.

Thanks for the info.

He makes it a general rule to avoid 28 and 66 and takes backroads home, so though he did have to change his route he knew lots of other routes. He got home about 10 minutes ago.

Pretty close I think, the kid was there and saw all the cop cars speeding bye, about 2 hours ago by now.

Well some are going to be disappointed(idisarthur and others) on this thread since the perp is not hispanic.

Prayers for those injured and prayers that some will get over their knee jerk ethnic animus.

I am betting that if this wasn't perpetrated by whites or blacks no national news station will pick this up.

I just put on WMAL radio on the computer, maybe they'll have some info on the 6 o'clock news. It is the only station down there that I know.

I'm sure the kids will be fine, my daughter is actually ON the campus, not at her house, I told her to stay put at least for right now.

And what did I say Saturday? Told her aunt "I really don't worry about her too much down there, it's really safe." Next time I'll bite my tongue!

My son-in-law works 5 minutes from there (he passed the hospital where they took the injured on his drive home) and I am happy that he is a licensed carry guy.
