[VIDEO] Man Shoots Two Police Officers With Hidden Gun
Captain Michael Schulman and Jeffrey Martin stopped Khari Gordon, 22 on suspicion of driving a stolen car. Gordon was ordered several times to take his hands out of his pockets. When he finally did, he was armed and shot both officers before fleeing the scene. He was arrested on Monday night and charged. The two were taken to the hospital. Officer Martin was shot in the hand. He was treated and released. Captain Schulman was shot in the armpit and is in critical condition with a collapsed lung.
The pair had pulled Gordon over at Zaxby’s restaurant on Monday at around 8pm after identifying the car he was driving as stolen.
Gordon was denied bail and faces two counts of felony intent to murder among other charges
After shooting the police men, Gordon fled on foot and hid for several hours in woodlands before being caught.
He has been denied bail and faces two counts of felony intent of murder, two counts of aggravated assault on an officer and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
Lavonia Police Chief Bruce Carlisle called for an end to police shootings on Monday as he gave details of the incident.
‘Yesterday was a terrible day for law enforcement in the state of Georgia. Four officers were shot.
‘This has to end. I don’t know what the answer is but it has to end somewhere,’ he told Fox News.
The duo are just two of six Georgia police officers to have been shot in the line of duty in recent weeks.
