Policeman ‘ambushed and executed’ in patrol car

A US police officer has been “ambushed and executed” as he sat in his patrol car outside his station in Arkansas.

Officer Stephen Carr was attacked by a gunman in the city of Fayetteville on Saturday evening.

Gunshots were heard behind the police building at about 9.42pm. When officers went to investigate, there were more gunshots.

The armed suspect confronted officers, who chased him into a nearby alleyway where they shot and killed him, before returning to the back of the building and finding Officer Carr shot inside his patrol vehicle.

He had been waiting for his partner in the car park when the shooting happened.
