Police official: 3 officers killed in Pa. shooting

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man opened fire on officers during a domestic disturbance call Saturday morning, killing three of them, a police official said. Friends said he feared the Obama administration was poised to ban guns.

Three officers were killed, said a police official at the scene who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Police spokeswoman Diane Richard would only say that at least five officers were wounded, but wouldn’t give any other details.

Police planned to release more details at a mid-afternoon news conference Saturday.

The man who fired at the officers was arrested after a several-hour standoff. One witness reported hearing hundreds of shots.

The shootings occurred just two weeks after four police officers were fatally shot March 21 in Oakland, Calif., in the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.

Police did not immediately release the gunman’s identity, but his friends at the scene described him as a young man who thought the Obama administration would ban guns.

This entire story STINKS all to HELL and back. First and foremost, I want to extend our deepest sympathies to the families of the slain and wounded officers. Your loved ones were doing the job they loved and made the ultimate sacrifice. God bless them each and every one!

One friend, Edward Perkovic, said the gunman feared “the Obama gun ban that’s on the way” and “didn’t like our rights being infringed upon.” Another longtime friend, Aaron Vire, said he feared that President Obama was going to take away his rights, though he said he “wasn’t violently against Obama.”

OK, right here is where I call BULLSHIT on the MSM and this kind of reporting. The MSM is doing everything in their power to support Obama and Company and some loony-toons idiot like this shooter plays right into their hands.

No SANE and RESPONSIBLE gun owner is happy about what we see shaping up to be the biggest gun grab this world has seen in years. This dysfunctional idiot has done something no SANE person would have done if these reports are ANY kind of accurate. He attacked police officers over his own insecurity.

This idiot is NOT indicative of the American gun owner. This person is crazy. I guess no one saw that something had snapped in the guy. Maybe no one wanted to see it.

Sadly, all I know is that 3 officers are dead, and the gun owners of this nation just took another serious shot to the head. WE didn’t do it, but you can bet your ass that the anti-gun crowd will be screaming their heads off about banning ALL guns.

The shooter, Richard Poplawski, was arrested following a long standoff. Somehow that gives me NO peace. After the Oakland officers were murdered the Oakland PD took the murdering bastard OUT. Fourth Oakland police officer has died

The Pittsburgh PD lost 3 officers dead and 5 wounded, and didn’t…
