Colo. Officer OK After Man Fires AR-15 at T-Stop

May 28, 2013  | 

A Longmont (Colo.) Police officer wasn't hurt after a man driving without headlights at night opened fire with an AR-15 during a traffic stop.

Officer Brent Cairns, a four-year veteran, pulled over a Subaru Impreza driven by Jonathan Shank at 2:12 a.m. Wednesday. The two vehicles stopped in a Best Buy parking lot, reports the Longmont Times Call.

Shank exited his vehicle with an AR-15 and charged the officer. He opened fire on Officer Cairns, who returned fire and struck Shank with three rounds from his 9mm sidearm.

Shank remains in critical condition. Detectives recovered several guns and multiple boxes of ammunition from the suspect's home following the shooting.

Ofc only fired three rounds, how many were fired at the officer? I think he showed great restraint in not firing 11 or 12. It' s obvious the suspect was intent on killing the officer. Glad to hear the officer was not hit.

Did my career in Colorado, and retired there. Gov. Hickenlooper is a straight up Cop hater. When he was Mayor his Security Staff from D.P.D. knew he hated them. I had a friend/colleague in District 6 who confirmed that. My brother works in the Metro-Area, & friends on his current C.S.P. Security Detail say he's the biggest Cop hater they have ever seen. It's no suprise he wants to make gun laws against law abiding citizens. Brothers/Sisters in Blue watch your 3, 6, 9, & 12 o'clocks close.

Now that we have law that effectively stop violence, we need to start working to stop addictions by passing laws to restrict access to drugs of addiction like heroin and methamphetamine. After that, we can end teen pregnancy by outlawing cheerleader uniforms.
