(Before It's News)

This is the first instance where a police officer has been shot killed in Des Moines in the line of duty since 1977.

When this crap comes to places like Des Moines, nowhere is safe.

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

Police from Urbandale and Des Moines departments responded to a report of gunfire at the intersection of 70th Street and Aurora Avenue at about 1:06 a.m.

The first officers arriving on the scene found an Urbandale officer shot. The officer, whose name has not been released, died, said Des Moines Police Sgt. Paul Parizek in a news release.

At about 1:26 a.m., a Des Moines police officer was shot and killed near the intersection of Merle Hay Road and Sheridan Drive while responding to the scene where the Urbandale officer was shot.

Both officers were gunned down in their patrol cars.

As of 5:00 am, they have no suspects.
