The police killings are back. Two cops in Iowa were fatally shot early Wednesday and the gunman is on the loose following what appeared to be an “ambush-style attack”, the local police said.

The Des Moines Police Department said in a news release that the shootings took place early Wednesday.

According to the police statement, an Urbandale police officer was found shot to death near a high school in suburban Des Moines around 1 a.m. local time.

The Associated Press adds that Des Moines officers responded to assist. About 20 minutes later, a Des Moines officer was found shot. Both officers have died.

Des Moines police said both shootings “appear to have been ambush-style attacks” and the assailant is on the lam.
