DES MOINES, Iowa — Two metro police officers are dead following what is being called an “ambush-style attack.”

According to Des Moines Police the incident started at 1:06 a.m. Wednesday with a report of shots fired near 70th and Aurora. The first officer who arrived at that scene found an Urbandale police officer suffering from a gun shot wound. Twenty minutes later a Des Moines police officer was found shot at the intersection of Merle Hay Road and Sheridan Drive. Both officers have died from their wounds.

Des Moines Police are describing the shootings as ambush-style attacks.

At this time there is no information on a suspect and no arrests have been made.

A joint news conference is being held at 5:00 a.m. between the Urbandale Police Department and the Des Moines Police Department to release more information on the shootings. We will carry the event live on WHOtv.com and on Channel 13.

1. I just saw this on the news a few minutes ago.

What a vicious and cowardly ambush. I hope whoever did this is caught soon.

2. God damn, that's fucked up. This will lead to more killings. Fucking NRA lone wolf psychos.

What a horrible tragedy for their families. l hate violence like this; it's like a festering wound that never heals.
I hope the fucker (and it's always a lone killer) gets caught and locked up forever fast.

3. perrsonal note for me on this

I was set to go to my home state of Iowa this weekend to meet up with a college lady friend of mine who I have not seen in over 20 years. Se had to cancel because one of the officers killed was best friends with her son. Like brothers she told me. Just messaged her back and forth on facebook. So shocked, so sad for her son.
