Ohio Man Threatens Officers During Arrest, Vows To Be Next Serial Cop Killer
Cincinnati, OH – A man who was being arrested on multiple domestic violence charges on Tuesday threatened Cincinnati police and told them he was going to be the next famous serial cop killer.
The incident occurred just before 3 a.m. on Feb. 25 when Cincinnati police officers responded to a call about a domestic incident at a residence on Glenwood Avenue, Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Police said that 39-year-old Shamarr Handy choked and pushed a woman inside his home.
When officers attempted to take Handy into custody at the scene, he became very violent, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
Police said the suspect kicked in a door panel of a police cruiser and then threatened the officers.
"[Handy] threatened to smack the fire out of an arresting officer's mouth," according to a police report. "[Handy] also threatened to become the next Christopher Dorner."
Dorner was a notorious cop killer who released a manifesto against law enforcement officers after he was fired by the Los Angeles Police Department, according to CNN.
During a nine-day shooting spree in 2013, the former police officer killed four people and wounded three more.
It began when he gunned down the daughter of an LAPD officer, and her fiancé, who Dorner thought had bungled his termination appeal, according to CNN.
The district attorney said that Dorner was “hunting” former police colleagues and appeared to accept that he would not live, CNN reported.
During his rampage, Dorner drove around and randomly shot at police.
In one instance, he happened upon two police officers and shot them at point-blank range, killing one of them, CNN reported.
Dorner tried to escape by driving to the mountains but his pickup truck got stuck in the snow, according to the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
He holed up in an empty cabin in San Bernardino for days, within eyesight of a police checkpoint that was set up to capture him.
When Dorner was eventually found in a second cabin deeper in the mountains, he refused to surrender, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.
Even after police drove a tactical trailer into the cabin, Dorner wouldn’t back down and instead launched green smoke canisters at police.
Police retaliated with tear gas canisters and a fire was ignited in the cabin, CNN reported.
Ten minutes into the fire, police heard a single gunshot.
The autopsy report confirmed that Dorner died from a self-inflicted single gunshot to the head, according to CNN.
Handy, Dorner’s would-be copycat, was charged with felony domestic violence, felony vandalism, and two counts of menacing, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
He was being held in the county jail pending trial.
