Somebody knew that there were officers in that vehicle. Off duty or not. Sounds like something that gang members would do.

Somebody knew that there were officers in that vehicle. Off duty or not. Sounds like something that gang members would do.

It's been reported in several major News outlet that the gangstas have been told to target off duty and retired Officers since they are seen as easier targets and they don't routinely wear a bullet resistant vest.
