Shootout in Auburn
Auburn Police spent much of the night looking for Grady Wayne Wilkes, 29. Police say Wilkes opened fire on officers responding to a domestic disturbance at a home in the 3000 block of Wire Rd. just after 10 p.m. CST.

The responding officers were injured in the shooting and were taken to local hospitals. One of those officers was taken to East Alabama Medical Center, where he died. The identity of the officer killed as not yet been released.

Re: Shootout in Auburn
foxnews update.  Brandon Hughes, the Lee County District Attorney, was my bestie all through law school.  He's in his dream job and location.  The man is AU through and through.  And yes, this guy should get the death penalty, IMO.  Whether it was a cop who he killed or not, when you dress up in camo and a helmet and you're the one who opens fire, it's pre-meditated and satisfies the element of intent.  Fry his ass and make it fast and sexy.


Officials say they intend to pursue the death penalty for the 29-year-old man accused of shooting and killing an Alabama police officer and wounding two others late last night.


Grady Wayne Wilkes, who was arrested earlier this morning following an intensive manhunt, is accused of murdering veteran Auburn police officer William Buechner when he allegedly opened fire on a group of officers at a trailer park.

“When you shoot a police officer, we’re going to pursue the death penalty,” Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes told AL.com.
The officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call when Wilkes – clad in camouflage body armor and a helmet – opened fire, authorities said.


Officials have not disclosed a possible motive in the incident. When police caught up to Wilkes later with the help of a tip, he reportedly did not resist arrest and is now cooperating with investigators, according to AL.com.
Police Chief Paul Register said Buechner had been with the department for 13 years. He identified the officers who were wounded as canine officer Webb Sistrunk and Evan Elliott. Sistrunk is being treated at a hospital in Columbus, Georgia, while Elliott was treated and released.
"This is probably the worst day of my time here and words cannot express the loss for this family, and our family, and this community," Register told reporters earlier Monday.
A tweet posted on one of Auburn University’s accounts had warned students to stay away from the Arrowhead Mobile Home Park, which is about five miles away from Auburn's campus.

"I heard six shots, rapid-fire like it was an automatic weapon, and then there was a brief pause, maybe a second, and then three more single shots," a resident at the park, who asked not to be identified, told the Opelika-Auburn News.
Wilkes is now charged with capital murder, three counts of attempted murder and an account of second-degree domestic abuse. He's expected to face a judge in the coming days, AL.com reported.
A woman from Coffee County, located south of Auburn, asked a judge in November for a court order protecting her from alleged abuse by Wilkes, records viewed by the Associated Press show.
Wilkes, who had an address in the Alabama city of Enterprise at the time, was accused of sexually assaulting the woman while she was incapacitated, and the woman said she feared he would harm her after learning she was pressing charges, according to a court document. She is married to another man.
The judge refused a protection order following a hearing in January, ruling the woman didn't have a "qualifying relationship" with Wilkes, whom she said she did not know before the alleged assault.

There is no record of sexual assault charges against Wilkes and records show he has no criminal record in Alabama.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said she is "heartbroken" by the shooting and has called the violence tragic and useless.
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Re: Shootout in Auburn
I fear for our future. There seems to be, not only a lack of respect for those in blue but an outright hit on them. I lost my cousin (MCSO deputy David Beck) in 1974, and the low-life will spend his entire miserable life behind bars when he should have been executed. I hope they fry this SOB, and hell yes, make it sexy.

Re: Shootout in Auburn
What snags said. Fry the piece of shoot. All the makings of malice and premeditation. I checked out the dudes fb page this morning and the dude seemed to have a beef with police. As bad as it is it’s very rare in auburn. Maybe 2-3 times a year. In Columbus, ga it’s every tues, Thursday and twice on Saturday. 

Cool side story - not a BIL Level one mind you. Sat on a murder trial as a juror in 2011 for Brandon Hughes. Kid killed another kid over a bag of pot between auburn and lochapoka. It was a pretty open and shut case and I think we deliberated about 20 mins. I remember Hughes being very no bullshoot then.
