Pittsburgh Ambush Trial: Poplawski Confessed In Phone Calls

June 22, 2011  | 

Richard Poplawski admitted in phone calls to a friend and 911 dispatchers he was killing police officers at his home, witnesses testified Tuesday in his capital murder trial.

"I shot three cops," Michael Bogert, 18, testified that Poplawski told him in a phone call before he surrendered. "I got shot. I'm probably going to bleed to death, or go to jail for the rest of my life."

Margaret Poplawski, his mother, told police they "should have killed her son; he's a cop-killer; and that she didn't have anything to do with this," according to Pittsburgh SWAT Officer Joseph Novakowski.
