“Police are hunting three men after officers were fired at with a submachine gun in north-west London,” telegraph.co.uk reports. “At least 14 shots were fired from the automatic weapon at three plain clothes officers who were carrying out inquiries in Willesden.” The bad guy fired at the Old Bill from a Skorpion sub-gun [as above]. “No-one was injured in the incident, but an unmarked police car and street furniture in Mitchell Way were damaged.” While the perp got away scot-free (so to speak) the UK police were very clear about one thing . . .
Detective Inspector Glenn Butler, said: “Enquiries still continue to establish who was the intended target of this firearm discharge but whatever the motive, the actions of this person or persons shows a blatant disregard as anyone could have been injured.”
Armed criminals with a blatant disregard for public safety? Pull the other one it’s got bells on it.
