Video: Attempted Ambush on Seattle Police Officers

January 14, 2015

The shooting came minutes after police responded, for the second time New Year’s Eve, to a report of a domestic violence incident at a home in Seattle.

In the video, officers are seen speaking with the domestic violence suspect as, off-camera, one vehicle pulled up rapidly behind the officer’s patrol car and another vehicle stopped farther down the block.

Officers heard gunfire and quickly took cover behind the patrol car, shielded the domestic violence suspect, and returned fire.
