Stolen car with a gun shooting at the PoPo. Can you say meth heads? Let's hope that's all it was. Later that night EPD capped a guy in North Edmonton.
Update: The Edmonton Journal is reporting that a semi-automatic shotgun was recovered from the scene and that "an Edmonton police officer exchanged fire with a man after tailing a vehicle with a stolen trailer, resulting in a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the man."
