Today I woke up to an alert on my phone- it read something to the effect of “Two officers shot by suspect David Ware who is armed and dangerous, call 911 if seen.” Okay, so considering the stigma with the police, after the murder of George Floyd, this message wasn’t particularly out of the ordinary.
But then I came across this article
It goes into detail regarding how the situation escalated, and if you really think about it, the guy must really know how to use a firearm if he killed to police and got away. The article is even more chilling:
Officer Aurash Zarkeshan pulled David Anthony Ware over after seeing his car with a paper tag that had expired, according to court documents. Tulsa Police Sergeant Craig Johnson stopped to back Zarkeshan up.
Zarkeshan told Ware to get out of the car because it was going to be towed, but police say Ware refused.
Police say Johnson tried to use his taser before Ware grabbed it and Johnson pepper-sprayed him while trying to get him out of the car.
Ware then reached under his seat for a gun and fired three times at the two officers, according to the affidavit.
Johnson was shot in his head and body.
Zarkeshan was shot in his head, upper body, and lower body.
Documents say Ware stood over Johnson after he’d been hit and shot him three more times.
Both officers were taken to the hospital where they are in critical condition.
Police searched for several hours before finding David Anthony Ware who they say shot the officers and ran away.
Officers found him at a home near 31st and Garnett.
One officer is suspected of having TBI and severe neurological difficulties for the rest of his life. The other officer died.
Really makes one think twice about the need for police officers? Either that, or keep a firearm on you.
