Urbandale police have had several encounters with Scott Michael Greene, but Police Chief Ross McCarty says there was no indication that Greene might resort to such violence.
The 46-year-old Greene is accused of first gunning down Urbandale Officer Justin Martin, who was shot in his patrol vehicle around 1 a.m.
OC……….and under thirty. :12
Moments later, about two miles away, Greene allegedly shot and killed Des Moines Police Sergeant Anthony Beminio, who was also in a patrol car.
Investigators have said there was likely nothing the officers could have done to prevent the attacks.
McCarty said Greene had appeared in court Tuesday afternoon, but it’s not clear if that played a role in shootings.
Police believe Greene is the sole suspect in the murders of the two officers.
