(FOX NEWS) Two Iowa police officers were gunned down in their squad cars in the wee hours of Wednesday and a manhunt was underway after what authorities called ambush attacks.
The shootings came near Des Moines and occurred just 25 minutes apart, according to Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek. One Des Moines police officer and another from the suburb of Urbandale were found in their bullet-riddled cruisers.
“In all appearances it looks just like that, that these officers were ambushed,” Parizek said. “It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these cowards and the officers they shot in their cars.”
