Posted on 05/12/2011 10:29:20 AM PDT by hedgetrimmer
At approximately 8:36 a.m. a male identified as Cody Nathaniel Willcoxon was seen at the entrance gate at Fort Leonard Wood with an AK-47. After being questioned by FLW Military Police the suspect fled the scene, and was pursued by members of the Pulaski County Sheriff's Dept. and St. Robert Police Department in a silver passenger car. The suspect then began to shoot at the pursuing officers, and he headed east on I-44. Spike strips were set up on I-44 which resulted in the suspect exiting at the Rolla 184 Exit. The Suspect then began shooting at Rolla Police Officers and members of the Phelps County Sheriff's Dept. as they pursued him. The suspect then drove through several areas in Rolla where he continued shooting at officers. The suspect vehicle stopped near McNutt Hall at Missouri University of Science and Technology near University Drive/Hwy 63. The suspect fled from his vehicle on foot with a long rifle. A perimeter was established by Law Enforcement Officers around McNutt Hall and the building was cleared by law enforcement officers.
Several minutes later the suspect broke into an occupied residence in the 1000 block of Crinoidal Ct. The suspect demanded the keys to the resident's car and stole it. He later fled the scene in the stolen car and since that time neither he nor the car has been located. The stolen car is identified as:
Stolen Vehicle 2003 Ford Taurus Charcoal Gray in color MO License ROLLAB (The license plate is a Rotary Club International personalized license plate) The vehicle has several stickers on the back window (American Flag, Air Evac, and Rotary Club International)
Worse than that, Ft. Leonard Wood is the Military Police School (among other things).
They may be contract security, but are you sure they aren't DoD Police?
Isn’t there a military prison there? Wasn’t that where they were taking that traitor, Manning (Wikileaks guy) so he wouldn’t be tortured so much? Is it called “the brig” or is that only for certain branch/es of the service?
You’re thinking of Ft. Leavenworth, next state over (KS).
Oh, yes, my bad. Thanks.
It reads like Standard Plot #6 for Cookie-Cutter Cop Shows....
The keystone cops of the 20’s would be more like it.
One thing they are good at is catching speeders.
Thanks, glad to know it.
The school has removed the emergency notification and the link to the site now shows their normal content for the page.
How dare he try to mount an assault on my old basic training base!!! Well, I oughta run down there and help them get the guy!!! Now, where’d I put that package of Depends!!!!
Once it was determined that the perp was white without an Islamic surname, Eric Holder and Obama recalled the team of lawyers that was dispatched to ensure his ‘rights’ were protected.
I have a cousin there.
My kids did basic there. They are pissed they can’t use their training to defend America. What a joke everything is. If Obama wins in 2012, our country is toast, put a fork it in. Then, all bets are off. Gloves are off. We’ll be beyond Galt.
I’m completely ready for the next revolution. We’re at the breaking point.
To be fair, it is the Defense Language Institute so they have harsh words in any number of languages at their disposal for defense.
Apparently nobody told Cody Willcoxon...
I would like to know a little more about the MP’s on duty at the gate..
He’s either very lucky or has been training.
You simply have to learn the “new journalism!”
Maybe his mission was to test the security.
THIS is Janet's dream
so she can impose even more draconian security and infringements.
What happens when an authorized truck drives near a military facility with lots of troops.
Yeah, yeah! Score one for the progressive thinking dem”O”lemmings.
A prime example of what that dolt Obama and the liberals like Pelosi and Feinstein want. Only the bad guys should have guns, not the mean racist police or the vicious military. Oh No! Vote Obama in 2012 and so he can complete the disaster he and the other whacko’s started.
“If you voted for Obama in 2008 to show the world that you are not a racist, then you're going to have to vote for someone else in 2012 to show the world that you aren't a total idiot.”
They could have offered him a Twinkee or a Snickers bar, mabye asked him to share peanuts and a beer. That’s what Obama would have done. Obama knows best.
Obama and the dem”o”witts will surely infer that Wilcoxen is a Right Wing,Ron Paul, Nazi, Tea Party Supporting Repblican.
no matter how many times I see the “Journalist Guide to Firearms Identification” it cracks me up that the actual AK is listed as an M-16... :-D
God help us if a group of terrorists goes Mumbai on a US military base... Or we get attacked by Spetsnaz.
Is there a corresponding properly-labeled diagram for those Freepers who want to improve their firearms identification skills?
First one is the AK-47.
Last one is a car. :)
Don’t know exactly about the others.
I figured out those two. :-)
Top to bottom first column: AK-47, P-90, Barrett M-90, Browning .45, toy potato gun. Next column: M16a1, Uzi, Walther PPK, RPG7, horrible vehicle.
Is he in basic?
Thank you! :-)
Yes - he’s actually my first cousin’s stepson - GREAT kid!
Re your photo on post 17 of the perp. This is one strangely shaped dude. Look at the elongated neck, it appears to be the same length as the head, which is highly unusual. And the way the shoulders fall away from the neck. One for the record books.
And the facial expression tells us that we’re dealing with a highly intelligent individual. /s/
Let’s see if we ever find out why he was attempting to get on base.
Sounds like a great idea from the minds of Monty Python.
What’s gonna happen is the Post Commander is going to issue
(more) new regs that restrict access to firearms for on post personnel.
And thn he will claim he solved the problem.
Are they military bases or Peace Corps posts?
Jr ROTC programs if the troops can’t have arms and ammo at hand.
