DES MOINES, Iowa Two metro police officers are dead following what is being called an ambush-style attack and police say there is a clear and present danger to police officers right now.
According to Des Moines police the incident started at 1:06 a.m. Wednesday with a report of shots fired near 70th and Aurora. The first officer who arrived at that scene found an Urbandale police officer in his patrol vehicle, suffering from a gunshot wound. Twenty minutes later a Des Moines police officer was found shot in his patrol vehicle at the intersection of Merle Hay Road and Sheridan Drive. Both officers have died from their wounds.

Sounds like these cops were patrolling on their own ?
Nothing at the source re the range of the attacker/s, but pairing up gives an extra set of eyes.
Oops, just saw this part: “Des Moines police officers are being paired up to keep them safe and Sgt. Parizek said he believes Urbandale police are taking similar precautions.”
This in white bread America? People better wake up!
Less than two miles apart, in the suburb of Urbandale near Urbandale High School and Merle Hay Mall, and the strip malls along Merle Hay Road. It was during a thunderstorm.
The entire area is shut down, including Urbandale High School. I have an office in the affected area, so we’ll see how long the area is blocked off.
It is a white working-class to upscale area. Not the ‘hood.
Not far from me either; unreal.
There was shooting close their just a couple of days ago; shots fired into a car near Merle Hay Mall
Latest: Police seeking Scott Michael Green, 41, in a blue Ford F150, possibly heading toward Omaha. Likely has has AR15-style rifle.
This is the ‘Obama legacy’, don’t ya know!
Per KCCI, Urbandale has closed schools for the day.
...police wanted to interview Scott Michael Green, 41, who could be traveling through the Omaha area after fleeing from the shooting scenes. Also, the advisory said, Green may be carrying a high-powered or AR-15 rifle and he could be driving a 2011 blue Ford F-150 pickup truck with Iowa plates...
Is this the perp....
Man jailed for aggravated assault on former girlfriend
Not sure what the connection would be from Witchita, TX, to Des Moines and Omaha, but who knows?
Tough-looking for age 41.
OMG....that’s worse than a regular rifle!!
Why would LE put out a name, but not a pic? What if they’ve got the wrong vehicle, the perp ditches his ride. Public needs a pic.
I went to college in Des Moines. The two incidents are more like two miles apart rather than miles apart. Urbandale High School is at 70th and Aurora, and the second shooting would have been about two miles southeast. It's a fairly affluent, predominately white suburb without a lot of crime.
46-year-old Scott Michael Greene of Urbandale, Iowa. 5’11”, 180 lbs, brown hair, green eyes.
Blue Ford pu with silver topper and ladder rack. Thought to be around Omaha at this time.
