White Supremacist Shoots Officer Seven Times, Attacks 88-Year-Old Man, Punches Man In The Face
A Vancouver police motorcycle officer in Washington who stopped a black pickup truck which was believed to be stolen was shot seven times when the driver leaned out his window and opened fire, according to court documents released onTuesday. Officer Dustin Goudschaal survived the shooting, and he’s listed in stable condition at a local hosptial.
After Goudschaal was shot, the suspect, who police identified as James Sapp, sped off with a passenger in his truck, according to a witness identified as Sam Anderson.
According to Anderson, Goudschaal asked her to help him and she bandaged a wound on the officer’s neck before paramedics arrived.
Following the shooting, police frantically searched for Sapp, who they said is affiliated with a white supremacist group and has a large swastika tattoo and “White Pride” across his lower back.
It’s always nice that they leave marks on their skin to easily identify them after they fly into murderous rages.
According to KPTV, Sapp appeared to crash the black pickup truck a few blocks from the traffic stop. The passenger in Sapp’s truck, Timothy Plantenberg, explained to detectives that he grabbed the steering wheel of the truck in order to cause the crash, and that Sapp later opened fire and shot at him, and he managed to escape.
Sapp wasn’t finished. According to police, he came across an 88-year-old man, then proceeded to push him then grab the keys to his tan Chevy S10 pickup.
When two men tried to stop Sapp from driving away, he punched one of them in the face and assaulted the other. .
At that point, Sapp drove off in the stolen truck, but later crashed, and that’s when police took him into custody.
When the police interviewed him, he blamed the shooting on a passenger in his truck that he identified only as “Dan.”
According to KPTV. Sapp is charged with attempted murder, robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm after Monday’s shooting. He has a criminal history which includes multiple felony convictions. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said Sapp was arrested in 2010 for felony assault. Deputies confiscated drugs, ammunition, and materials related to white supremacy at his home.
