Ohio Shooter Fires 37 Shots At Cops In A Deadly Attack

Dash cam video released from Middlefield police shows a man shooting at police with an assault rifle during a traffic stop in March.

During a news conference Friday, police showed the weapons and other items that were found in the suspect's car.

According to police, officers pulled over James Gilkerson, 42, of Mentor-on-the-Lake, on March 10 for failing to stop at the intersection of East High Street and North State Avenue.

The video shows Gilkerson getting out of the car and firing an AK-47-style rifle at the police officers.

Officers Erin Thomas and Brandon Savage were injured by gunfire. Thomas was shot in the hand. Savage was able to fire back and strike Gilkerson.

Gilkerson then moves back toward his car and yells "kill me" while continuing to fire shots.

A report released by the Geauga County prosecutor's office said Gilkerson fired 33 rounds at the officers.

His gun had a 40-round magazine attached. Officer Savage fired 29 rounds.

Inside Gilkerson's car, police found multiple loaded magazines and loads of ammunition, ski masks and gloves, military-style ammo cans, a scoped .22 caliber rifle, instructional DVDs and books such as "Kitchen Approved Plastic Explosives," "Advance Close-Range Gunfighting," Homemade Detonators" and others.

The prosecutor ruled earlier this week that both officers acted in self defense and would not face any charges.

Yup, this was bound to happen sometime, since the terrorists within our government have been pushing us into a corner.  I just wish the perp had had more patience and worked with others instead of going lone wolf.  That will never work.  It will take all of us coming together to make a difference.  We did it before and we can do it again against our foreign occupied zionist government.   Only last time it was the Zionist controlled British.  Did research on that and Britain has definitely been controlled by the Rothschilds for a very long time.  But we beat them once and we can do it again, if needed and its beginning to appear as if it will be needed.  Lock downs are simply a way to implement "ILLEGAL" Martial Law using false flags to do so, and doing it one city and  one state at a time beginning with the most populated and liberal states.  Massachusetts qualifies fully.
