And CAIR will be soon telling us he is mentally unbalanced.
“After the suspect was taken into custody, he reported that he knew he must do something extreme to draw attention to Islam and himself, so he planned to shoot police officers,” May said.
A man from Albertville is being detained for attempting to murder multiple law enforcement officers early Sunday morning, according to Gadsden police. He has been identified as Luis Ibarra-Hernandez, age 21. An attempted murder warrant was obtained against Ibarra-Hernandez this afternoon.
Police say Ibarra-Hernandez lured officers to Alabama City west of Wall Street by shooting out store windows. He then opened fire on the officers for about 30 minutes before being pinned down and surrendering, Captain Regina May with the Gadsden Police Department said.
The incident began at approximately 1:25 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 8. Gadsden police officers responded to Rainbow Food Mart on West Meighan Blvd. after receiving an alarm call. They found nothing out of the ordinary after arriving, but shortly afterward another alarm call went out for the Auto Zone nearby on West Meighan Blvd.
Officers responded to the Auto Zone and discovered that the front door had been shattered by a bullet. After completing a police report at Auto Zone, police heard more gunfire in the area, May said. Another glass break alarm went off at the Rainbow Food Mart and officers observed glass had been broken from a gunshot.
As police completed their report on the Rainbow Food Mart incident, the officers saw a suspicious person lurking in the area around 2:55 a.m., according to May.
Ibarra-Hernandez ran from police and the officers pursued him on foot. More officers responded to the activity in the Alabama City area. While running through the streets and alleyways, the suspect opened fire on several of the law enforcement officers chasing him. Police officers took cover behind trees and vehicles and set up a perimeter around the suspect, May said. More law enforcement agencies arrived to the scene to offer support.
