An interesting case to follow

Article posted on December 23, 2017

I wanted to get a few things into my blog last night, so I didn’t have room to add information about the shooting at the capitol yesterday.  We got word last evening that very close to the Capitol, a man shot a Capital Police cruiser four times; the officer inside the car wasn’t hit.  A pursuit ensued and along the way a State Police Trooper was shot, police returned fire and killed the assailant, who was identified as 51-year-old Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty.  The only update I could find today said the Trooper was released from the hospital last night, the police were definitely targeted by the shooter, and that the shooter has ties to the Middle East, but no official word on whether this was an act of terrorism.  This will be an interesting case to follow.
