Default Man With AK-47 Attacks Police

Police in an Ohio town pulled this guy over in early March, 2013. He came out of his car firing an AK-47. He fired 33 rounds before the cops killed him.

Quote:
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 guy starts shooting just after the red truck passes:

There are a bunch of other links to this incident at the link.

Good reaction on the cops, but their marksmanship sucks. I guess that's understandable, as LEOs don't usually have much experience firing while being shot at in such a rapid rate. For that matter, if that turd had been using the shoulder stock as designed and taking well aimed shots, instead of hip shooting, this could have had an entirely different outcome. Did anyone else seem to hear him screaming "kill me"?

Most peoples marksmanship would suffer if someone was shooting at them with a AK/47.

Read the whole post instead of snipping. I covered that.

I heard it... And the officers confirmed it in the article.

Fortunately for the officers, this guy did not appear to be well trained and was more interested in dying than winning.

Glad the Officers made it but the female took a 7.62 x 39 to the hand... Doubt she returns to duty after that.

Tack

Perhaps a description other than "sucks" would have been more accurate and less inflammatory.

God bless the innocents and their families.

I know there are many other issues covered in this video, but what hit me was the lack of response by the AK wielding man, to the pistol rounds he is obviously absorbing.

According to my count, it took 18 seconds for him to succumb to his injuries from the time of the 1st pistol shot i can distinguish.

That is crazy video!!

I would be surprised if they hit him with the first shot.
