    IA - Sgt. Anthony Beminio, 38, & Officer Justin Martin, 24, fatally shot, 2 Nov 2016

    Two Iowa cops found shot to death in 'ambush-style attacks' in Des Moines suburb


    Two cops in Iowa were fatally shot early Wednesday and the gunman is on the loose following what appeared to be an ambush-style attack, authorities said.

    An Urbandale police officer was found shot to death in a residential neighborhood in the Des Moines suburb around 1 a.m. local time, police said in a statement.

    A second police officer in Des Moines was killed nearly 20 minutes later near the first crime scene.

    Des Moines police said both shootings “appear to have been ambush-style attacks” and the assailant is on the lam.

    A search is underway for the person who fatally shot them.

    Investigators say one officer was sitting alone in his patrol car when he was shot around 1am.

    A second officer was found shot to death in his car by police.

    There are very few details at this point, and we expect to get an update from police in Des Moines at 5am CST.

    We're following this story on Eyewitness News. Watch for updates..

    Urbandale resident Scott Michael Greene, 46, is being sought by investigators. Greene is 5’ 11” / 180 lbs with brown hair and green eyes. Greene was last known to be driving a blue 2011 Ford F-150 with Iowa license plate 780 YFR. The truck has a silver colored topper with a ladder rack.

    Greene is believed to be armed and should be considered dangerous. If seen, please do not approach Greene, but call 911 and report his location.

    Video posted by suspect on his YouTube channel on 10/16. Appears he is the one filming - the subject of the video.

    ETA - rumor, so if this portion of my post is not OK, mods please delete. Apparently he was waving a confederate flag at an Urbandale football game during the national anthem and someone (?) took it from him. I heard this direct from a father of a child who was at the game and saw the incident.

    A close friend's husband is an Urbandale police officer who was a responding officer to the shooting. I cannot imagine what those spouse's live with on a daily basis.

    I'll bet it took a lot of self-restraint on the part of LE to not send this guy on a one way trip to the afterlife.

    I haven't heard anything at all about what the possible motive would be.........anger ? Rage? Insanity ?

    It's my understanding that both cops were simply parked and minding their own business right before he blindsided them.

    Why would he do something like that ?

    Thank Goodness. I was afraid he was going to kill some more people before they found him. RIP Officers. Thank you both for your brave service...

    Well thats a first kills two cops then flags down someone cause he started having seizures

    Des Moines police said Greene was arrested without incident after flagging down state employee on a road and asking to call 911.
    Greene was transported to a hospital in Des Moines. Reports indicate Greene was suffering from seizures.
    Police said Greene was not armed when he was captured. Officials are searching for the weapon involved.



    The officers were killed in two shootings about 20 minutes apart in Urbandale and Des Moines, police say.
    “It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is who shot them while they sat in their cars,” Des Moines Police Sergeant Paul Parizek said at a press conference.

    comments of one of the videos, Greene wrote, “I was offended by the blacks sitting through our anthem. Thousands more whites fought and died for their freedom. However this is not about the Armed forces, they are cop haters.”

    stadium is at the same intersection where the Urbandale police officer was killed Wednesday morning, the newspaper reports.

    he reportedly threatened to kill a man in the parking lot of the same apartment complex and he was charged with first-degree harassment, according to another complaint.

    In that incident, Greene was accused of approaching a man in the parking lot and shined a flashlight in his eyes. Greene, who lived in the apartments, called the man the N-word and told the man “I will kill you, (expletive) kill you,” according to the complaint. Greene pleaded guilty to a lesser harassment charge on June 30, 2014, and was sentenced to one year of probation...

    ... A YouTube video posted on an account with the name Scott Greene is titled "Police Abuse, Civil Rights Violation at Urbandale High School 10/14/16," with a description that says "This is an assault on a person exercising his constitution rights on free speech!" Urbandale police are investigating the videos, they said....
    BBM - Looks like (from what I surmise) he is a cop (maybe even government) hating racist

    Looks like in addition to his tantrum from police taking his confederate flag he was using to harass the African Americans in the stands, he harassed another African America before.

    Deplorable human being.

    Here is his video



    Apparently he went to a high school game with a confederate flag, sat in front of AA and a tussle happened

    he was convicted of harassment in 2014 after police said he approached a man in the parking lot of his apartment complex, shined a flash light in his eyes and called him the “N-word.” Greene then told the man, “I will kill you, (expletive) kill you,” according to records.

    He was sentenced to one year of probation. ..........Greene received a mental health evaluation and “complied with the medication recommendations,”
    Greene was convicted of interference with official acts in 2014 after resisting officers’ attempts to pat him down for weapons at the same apartment complex, the Des Moines Register reports. According to the police report, the officers wanted to search Greene after noticing a pouch similar to a holster on his belt.
    “noncompliant, hostile, combative and made furtive movements toward his pockets,” according to the Register.
    He was also arrested in 2001 and charged with domestic assault, assault causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

    He was also charged in 2010 with driving under the influence. The charges in those cases were all later dismissed,

    Greene filed for bankruptcy in .......2007, . daughter and two sons as dependents in the filing. at an office furniture store and previously worked for a boating company.

    Greene turned himself in to a police officer from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources without a struggle.

    first officer was found dead about 1:06 a.m.
    Responding officers “found an Urbandale Police Department police officer who had been shot.”
    The Urbandale officer was “still seated in his vehicle,” , “and he’d been shot and killed.”
    The second officer was found fatally shot about 1:25 a.m

    scene of the second shooting is about two miles away from where the Urbandale officer was killed.
