    "Two metro-area police officers were shot and killed in apparent "ambush style" attacks early Wednesday.

    Two police officers sitting in their squad cars in central Iowa were shot and killed early Wednesday morning in a pair of “ambush-style attacks,” the Des Moines Police Department said.

    Authorities on Wednesday morning named Scott Michael Greene, 46, as the suspect in the shootings that killed the officers from Des Moines and Urbandale, a nearby city. They said Greene, an Urbandale resident, was last seen driving a blue Ford F-150 with a silver-colored topper.

    “Greene is believed to be armed and should be considered dangerous,” the Urbandale and Des Moines police departments said in a statement, urging people not to approach him but to call 911 instead.

    Authorities in the Des Moines area appeared shaken by the double shooting, which came during a year that has seen bloody attacks on officers in cities including Dallas and Baton Rouge, assaults that have fueled a sense of anxiety among law enforcement nationwide."

    If convicted he should be executed or spend the rest of his life behind bars.

    Condolences to the families. Unfortunately, Iowa abolished the death penalty.

    Most likely the way it is listed on the police report.

    In America, assassins get first, middle, last names in the news. It's been a thing since the Lincoln assassination.

    One of the dumbest comments in PRSI. It is a legal name being reported.

    At birth I have One First name, Two Middle Names, one Last names. When I became a citizen the officer made me drop one middle name. #conspiracy.

    Horrible and Tragic.

    But I'm glad he surrendered and didn't hurt anyone else in the process.

    What are you talking about. I saw the documentary called "Conspiracy Theory" with Mel Gibson.

    https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Conspiracy_Theory

    Jerry: David Berkowitz, Ted Bundy, Richard Speck…
    Alice: What about them?
    Jerry: Serial killers. Serial killers only have two names, you ever notice that? But lone-gunman assassins, they always have three names. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Mark David Chapman…
    Alice: John Hinckley. He shot Reagan. He only has two names.
    Jerry: Yeah, but he only just shot Reagan. Reagan didn't die. If Reagan had died, I'm pretty sure… we probably would all know what John Hinckley's middle name was.

    IDK... but at least you liked the post where tunerX spelled it out for you. :p

    In all seriousness, the murderer is a nut case, I hope he is made an example of. The families, friends, and colleagues of those officers I hope will find a way though this tragedy.

    Probably because Scott Green(e) would be a fairly common name and they don't want every Scott Greene to be considered a suspect.
