Another Suspect Shot in the Back of a Police Car

(Hyoung Chang, The Denver Post)

A few days ago, Curtis posted some news from Arkansas about a 21 year old, handcuffed, sitting in the back of a police car, magically producing a gun and shooting himself in the head.

Well it looks like a similar incident took place in Denver a few days later.

This time the story has the suspect attacking the officer from the back seat.
Ryberg "was able to get out of the handcuffs and attacked the officer," police said. "During the struggle, a second officer came to the assistance of the first officer" and Ryberg was shot, police said.

Ryberg was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead

Police have not explained how Ryberg, who had prior arrests in Colorado, came to be in contact with the officer. A safety partition in patrol cars separates an officer from a suspect in the back seat.
Read the rest of the story here and pay close attention to the last couple paragraphs spotlighting one of the officers involved.
