Alabama gunman in camouflage kills police officer, wounds two others, officials say

Fox News

Police in Alabama have captured a gunman they say shot and killed a police officer and wounded two others at a trailer park in Auburn late last night, according to local reports.

The officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call when Grady Wayne Wilkes – clad in camouflage body armor and a helmet – opened fire, authorities said. Auburn University, citing police, later tweeted Monday morning that Wilkes was in custody.

“This is probably the worst day of my time here and words cannot express the loss for this family, and our family, and this community,” Auburn Chief of Police Paul Register told reporters Monday.

Wilkes, who is 29 years old, was described as being around 6-foot 4-inches, weighing 215 pounds.

“We do believe he is dangerous, and obviously in this situation was, to these officers,” Register added.

Register says two of the officers were seriously injured but are expected to recover. The deceased officer has not yet been identified.

A tweet posted on one of Auburn University’s accounts had warned students earlier to stay away from the Arrowhead Mobile Home Park, five miles away from its campus.

“I heard six shots, rapid-fire like it was an automatic weapon, and then there was a brief pause, maybe a second, and then three more single shots,” a resident there who asked not to be identified told the Opelika-Auburn News.

The newspaper reported that helicopters were encircling the mobile home community early Monday. Residents were told by responding officers to shelter in place.

    Wrong, pigsh#t.

    YOUR worst day will be when you get the same as that POS that got croaked (and the other 2 should have been finished off, too… lousy aim).

    “I heard six shots, rapid-fire like it was an automatic weapon, and then there was a brief pause, maybe a second, and then three more single shots,”

    Six. Like automatic weapon. Pause. 3 more single shots.
    This is a very stupid description.
    6 is hardly like auto. Easy enough to count.apparently. And what is 3 more single.shots? LIKE.the six where double shots? Or triple shots?

    When i shoot, even fast, all my shots are single shots.
