In the early hours of Wednesday morning, 2nd Nov,2016, two police officers were killed in Iowa.
Urban dale officer Justin Martin, hired by the suburban police department in August 2015 and Des Moines police Sgt Anthony Beminio, who has been with the department since 2005 were brutally killed during patrol. Police said it appeared that both officers were taken by surprise and had no opportunity to defend themselves.
Scott Michael Greene has been arrested in connection with the murders, the sole suspect in the officers’ slaying, this was due to more information released by Parizek, during an 11 am news conference. Scott will be prosecuted if found guilty.
Police are extremely shocked and sad about the deaths. Urbandale Mayor Bob Andeweg said he received a call around 2 a.m. about the deaths. “It’s my worst nightmare to hear about the things that happened,” Andeweg said. “I’ve been struggling to find the appropriate words today and I don’t think I have them.”He said no funeral or procession has been planned yet.
