(New York Post) A gunman with an AK-style assault rifle shot three cops in California on Wednesday — one fatally — as they tried to serve him with a search warrant, reports say.
The officers had been part of a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Auto Theft Task Force team, which was conducting a grand theft auto operation at a local Ramada Inn at around noon, according to KCRA.
They had just knocked on a suspect’s door and announced themselves when the man took out a “high-powered” rifle and began blasting, officials said.
