Anyone have any info on the shooting in alabama ? I think it was on Saturday. I keep hearing the news briefs but never get any of the details. All I have heard was that 2 Officers and 1 Dispatcher were shot. Any info appreciated.

It occurred at the PD while booking or Intox Test was administered. Officers had FAILED to secure their weapons, and well the rest is history. Shot one then the other and on to the dispatcher. Then stole the marked unit and was located about two hours later about 100 miles away in Miss. Truly sad, shit happens. They were probably Good Ol'e Boys, who thought that they knew the kid (21 yrs. Old) and just got lax. Moral never trust a suspect, NOT even your Mother!!! In 26 Yrs I made my mistakes and lucked out to retire and tell about it, but I'm not proud of them,,, but I learned from them!!! __________________________________________ Let's be safe out there!!!!!!

He was an 18 y.o. arrested driving a stolen car. He was being fingerprinted by one of the officers when the incident occurred.

Local news reports that the dispatcher was shot after suspect tried firing through a "bulletproof" glass partition (rounds were still lodged in the glass according to investigators), then walked around and fired through the door leading to the dispatch area.
