Gunman Shoots Officer Twice With Assault Rife, Police Say
Local10.com ^ | September 12, 2004

Police say this cruiser caught fire when a round fired from an assault rifle struck a gas line.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Police say a gunman with an assault rifle opened fire on a Miami-Dade County police officer around 2 a.m. Sunday, striking her twice and setting her cruiser ablaze.

The officer is expected to be OK. It's not known how many rounds the gunman fired, but one of them hit the police cruiser's gas line, setting it on fire. Police are looking for the gunman. They say they know his name, but are not releasing it to the public.

"Somebody that's going to fire on a uniformed officer in a police car with an assault-type weapon, that person's obviously showing very disregard for any law enforcment or any authority," said Pete Andrew of the Miami-Dade County Police Department.

The officer was in the area of Northwest 183rd Street and Miami Avenue in Miami Gardens when she pulled over the suspect. Police say the suspect got out of the car and opened fire.

But, but, but they're still banned until Monday. How did this happen? Didn't DiFi's law protect us from such weapons of mass destruction?
