Conway was a member of the Florence Police Department. He had just received a commendation pin for 30 year of police service.

Three of the seven officers shot were members of the Florence Sheriff’s Department. Five civilians were also injured when the gunfire erupted.

The suspect is Fred Hopkins, 74. According to the report, Hopkins is a “disbarred lawyer and a military veteran who received disability payments after being wounded in the Vietnam War.”

Hopkins has been taken into custody.

According to the sheriff’s office, police were trying to serve a warrant on a 27-year-old male who lives in Hopkins’ home and is accused of sexually abusing a foster child.

“Today will mark a very horrific day in the annals of the Florence Police department,” said Florence Police Chief Allen Heidler. “Today we lost a good friend of mine, an officer that I’ve known for 30 years. We have three other [city police] officers at this particular time who are receiving attention at this hospital.”

A 20-year-old male inside the home was also shot and injured during the exchange.

After an hours-long standoff, the police were finally able to arrest Hopkins, who was also injured.

The conditions of the injured have not been released.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
