Discussion in 'Line of Duty Death News' started by PPD54, Jun 4, 2012.
I'm being told that the officer has died of his injuries. He was apparently on duty and present at the scene of a domestic incident.
Edit: received an update through CBS app. Apparently, the guy then killed his girlfriend and himself.
The press is also saying he was there to serve a summons and walked into a domestic in progress. I'll wait until SPD holds a press conference before I believe the local press.
WTF! Seen way to much of this lately! Be safe out there guys!
If it turns out to be verified, RIP. I knew this was going to be a shitty year with OIS and line of duty deaths.
Just got word the Officer has died. Rest in peace, Brother.

RIP Brother. Stay Safe Out There Everyone!
Rest in Peace, Officer. Very sad.
Just got off the texter with a guy from there, he says word is the officer was serving 209a or summons and the scumbag got in a head shot. Makes me sick to my stomach
Springfield Police officer Kevin Ambrose shot and killed responding to domestic dispute at Sixteen Acres apartment complex
SPRINGFIELD — Springfield Police officer Kevin Ambrose was among three people shot and killed in a domestic dispute Monday afternoon at the Lawton Arms apartment complex in the Sixteen Acres neighborhood.
An officer's death was confirmed by Sgt. John Delaney, aide to Police Commissioner William Fitchet. The flag at police headquarters on Pearl Street was lowered to half staff.
An email sent from City Hall notifying city councilors and media that a City Council Casino Site Committee meeting had been canceled "Due to the death of Police Officer Kevin Ambrose."
I heard it as it was happening. I was only a couple of blocks away, passsing through Springfield earlier today. What an awful shame. The shooter was from driving a green Honda with New York plates and he shot himself in the car right out in front of the apartment complex. He was an African American guy. I didn't hear any word on who the officer was.
It's a travesty that in a city as dangerous as Springfield, the Chief of Police refuses to grant Class A Licenses to Carry to good, decent, law-abiding citizens. Maybe a lawfully licensed LTC-holder would have nailed the shooter before he did anyone any real harm. Instead, only the scumbag crooks have all the firepower, and that's a huge problem, in my humble opinion.
Rest in peace, officer. I am so sorry for your coworkers and family.
RIP Brother. Prayer said for his family and coworkers.
RIP Officer Ambrose. My prayers are with his family, friends, and coworkers
Fuck. RIP Officer Ambrose.
