Cops in gun-free England getting ambushed, shot, bombed with grenades: Piers Morgan unavailable for comment
Looks like Piers Morgan is right: there’s no gun-crime in England:
A fugitive lured police officers to him before shooting them repeatedly and then throwing a grenade at his victims, a court has heard… Dale Cregan, 29, had evaded a nationwide manhunt when he set the trap, Preston Crown Court heard.
Mr Cregan denies killing PCs Nicola Hughes, 23, and Fiona Bone, 32, in Hattersley, Greater Manchester last September. He also denies the murders of David Short, 46, and his son, Mark, 23… Mr Cregan appeared in court wearing a false left eye made of black onyx.
Mr Nicholas Clarke QC, prosecuting, said PCs Hughes and Bone were killed as they responded to a report of a burglary on the morning of 18 September.
Mr Clarke said: “[Cregan] lay in wait with a Glock firearm with an extended magazine that was fully loaded.
