Group Gets A Dose Of Karma For Attempting To Kill A Police Officer On The Roadside

It looks like several Oklahoma City Police officers were targeted in an ambush in early December. The officers were shot at in a traffic stop, but investigators now believe the officers were targeted in an ambush.

Moreover, five people have now been charged with attempting to shoot and kill police in a traffic stop on December 8th.

A police report describes how officers pulled over suspect Tavone Payne that evening. When they approached the driver’s side window, Payne was talking on his phone. One officer said he heard Payne asking someone on the phone to come to the traffic stop. Just seconds later, four men opened fire on the officers.

The officers now think the suspect was trying to get them killed. During the shooting, Payne fled on foot and managed to get away.

The officers were able to jump behind their squad cars as multiple bullets struck the sides. One shot grazed a police officer. He found a bullet trapped inside his jacket pocket after the incident.

Of note, police have arrested five suspects thought to be involved in the shooting - Tavone Payne, Donye Smiley, Trent Colbert, Marcus Robertson and Samuel Carolina.

All five have long criminal histories, and have been hailed without bond. They face multiple felony charges, including four counts of shooting with an intent to kill, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit a felony.
