Four police officers were shot, one fatally, in ambush attacks in four different U.S. cities yesterday:

The officer who was killed was ambushed while in his car writing a ticket:

The first and only fatal shooting took place just before noon in San Antonio, directly outside the police station, as a 20-year veteran of the police department issued a traffic ticket from inside his patrol car. The assailant, seemingly unconnected to the original motorist, shot the officer twice in the head before fleeing in a black car.


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement yesterday, saying “Texas won’t tolerate police targeting.”
