VIDEO: California Officers Ambushed in Unmarked Vehicle, Suspect Wounded in Gunfight

In what police are calling an ambush attack, gunfire disabled a police vehicle in San Bernardino Thursday night, but the officers were unhurt and returned fire, police said.

Officers estimated that about 10 shots were fired at them at about 8:45 p.m. near the Terrace Motel along Foothill Boulevard near Meridian Avenue, near the city’s border with Rialto.

The officers were in an unmarked vehicle in an alley, Lt. Rich Lawhead told the San Bernardino Sun. They exited the vehicle to return fire.

“They ran in a southbound direction to a wall of a motel called the Terrace Hotel. They then ran through the parking lot of the Terrace Hotel and out here onto Foothill where they encountered two of our officers,” Lawhead said.

An officer fired on one of the men, hitting him, while another suspected gunman tried to enter into a motel room, Lawhead said. He was taken into custody. A third man was later found in a nearby mobile home park.

The wounded suspect, 17, was hit in the abdomen, ABC 7 reports. He is reportedly in stable condition.

Let me guess, minority suspects? Once again your publication does not tell all of the truth. We as readers should know what the Race of the criminals is so that we can judge for ourselves if these types of attacks on LEOs are just criminals acting as criminals do regardless of race or if this is Racially motivated and a result of the current anti-police BLM movement etc. Seriously this is a new category of "cop hate" criminality and we need to be able to correlate when an attack on police is political/racially motivated or is just another criminal act. Please consider this when writing your articles. I know other readers feel the same way. Most publications include both the race of the officer and the "victim" in any OIS so why don't you when we cops are the victim? Something to contemplate.
