Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- The recent killing of a couple in Houston, Texas, and the wounding of four police officers, has been claimed to be an ambush of police by drug dealers.
Later accounts by officers at the scene show that police broke into the house, and fired first, killing the couple’s dog.
The husband then fired back, wounding the officer who killed their dog.
