630am BKE Officer Stabbed, Shooting Magic City Casino


IF YOU’RE AT LEJEUNE ROAD HEADING TO THE SAME SPOT, ONLY FOUR MINUTES TOTAL DRIVE TIME. BACK TO THAT BREAKING NEWS, AN OFFICER STABBED AT THE MAGIC CITY CASINO. THIS MORNING THAT OFFICER IS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL. AND SO IS THAT STABBING SUSPECT AS WELL. BEN KENNEDY IS LIVE FOR US OUTSIDE THE CASINO WITH THESE BREAKING DETAIL. HOW IS THE OFFICER DOING FIRST OF ALL? Reporter: THAT’S THE GOOD NEWS. THE OFFICER IS IN STABLE CONDITION. IT LOOKS LIKE HE WILL BE ALL RIGHT. I DID TALK TO A WITNESS MOMENTS AGO WHO SAID THIS MAN WITH A KNIFE JUST ACTED ERRATICALLY, OUT OF CONTROL. TACKLED THE POLICEMAN TO THE GROUND. IT HAPPENED BEHIND ME AT THE MM CITY CASINO JUST BEFORE 1:00 THIS MORNING, ABOUT FIVE HOURS AGO. IT’S THERE STAFF REQUESTED THE OFFICER’S HELP TO REMOVE A BELLIGERENT PERSON FROM THE POKER ROOM WHO STABBED THE OFFICER IN THE FACE. THE OFFICER TOOK OUT HIS GUN AND SHOT THE ATTACKER. BOTH WERE RUSHED TO RYDER TRAUMA WHERE THE WITNESS IS CURRENTLY IN SURGERY. WITNESSES SAY THE MAN WOULD NOT COOPERATE AND SHOWED NO RESPECT TO THE OFFICER. I SAW HIM WRESTLING ON THE FLOOR. SOMEWHERE ALONG THOSE LINES IS WHERE HE MUST HAVE PULLED OUT HIS KNIFE. SHORTLY AFTER I HEARD THE GUN GO OFF. Reporter: YOU CAN SEE SEVERAL CARS ARE STILL LEAVING THE PARKING LOT. WE BELIEVE THESE COULD BE OTHER WITNESS WHO’S WERE HERE AT THE TIME, ALSO SOME STAFF. POLICE ARE STILL AT THE SCENE. AT LAST CHECK WITNESSES SAY THE OFFICER DID ACT VERY PROFESSIONALLY. HE TRIED TO GET THE MAN TO LEAVE PEACEFULLY HEAVY TIMES BUT THAT MAN WOULD NOT LISTEN.
