Could it have been a brave diversion for some larger crime - that won't come to light until tomorrow? Who knows?
they locked down all the police stations in that county, as well as the hospital...
I am monitoring scanner users posts from Va.
I work right next to the police station......stuck in my office......I better be able to leave in time to watch 24 tonight
4 officers shot, 1 suspect outstanding, 1 suspect shot.
ping for later
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.
Er ah, why not just count your blessings that you are safe and say a prayer for the injured people and those who continue to be in danger.
THX....... I suspect soon we'll have a better handle on the why's and who's of this thing.

In a breaking news e-mail from WTOP radio, drivers are urged to avoid Route 28 south of Route 50 and north of I-66.

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.
I'd like to know how blocking Rt. 28 advances their investigation.
Lord have mercy.
How about sending out trash trucks to dispose of the garbage...
"Some big heavy metal looking dude walked in and told the night clerk he was a friend of Sarah Connor".
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.
Prayers go out for all involved. Someone said a female detective has died.
My wife works right up the street from the Marriot where the truck was found.
To VA posters...
Keep your wits about you and a firearm with lots of ammo nearby...
But I thought that that crap is supposed to happen in LA....
