Adam Powell, a 41-year-old African American, brandished an assault rifle with a 70-round magazine and targeted the two officers at a Starbucks coffee shop. When Powell’s rifle malfunctioned and would not fire, officers gave chase and according to a police statement, the gunman “continued to manipulated the weapon and presented himself as a lethal threat to the officers.” The officers fired and struck Powell three times without killing the attacker, now in hospital.

Powell had served prison time for robbery, so he was no allowed to possess any kind of firearm. Vallejo police chief Andrew Bidou told reporters Powell had stalked the two officers, and intended to “assassinate” them. The pair, he said, were, “ambushed by a man with superior firepower.”

That same day, Powell had fled a house in Suisun City where a two-year-old was shot and critically injured. The events, Bidou told reporters, “underscore the extreme danger our officers face on a daily basis.”

Days earlier, Trenton Trevon Lovell, 27, gunned down Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant Steven Owen in what police called a “calculated execution.” Owen was responding to a burglary call when Lovell, 27, shot him with a stolen gun, then stood over his body and shot the downed officer four more times.
