The man suspected of the ambush killing of a Texas Constable earlier this month committed suicide one day after the incident. 

Constable Clint Greenwood was arriving at his job in Harris County on the morning of April 3rd in Baytown, TX when he was shot and killed.

Suspect William Kenny, 64, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound outside of Ben Taub Hospital just one day later.

No motive has yet been revealed as to why Kenny is believed to have shot and killed Constable Greenwood; however, it may have been related to recent complaints he made against several deputies and members of the criminal justice system.

Three men are in custody after ambushing and killing a Prince George's (MD) County police officer on Sunday afternoon in what has been described as a "horrific act of evil."

Officer Jacai Colson, 28, responded to the sound of shots being fired outside of police headquarters in Landover, MD at around 4:30 p.m. 

Officer Colson was struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital where he would succumb to his injuries.

Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said they knew of no specific motive for the shooting. "It wasn't about anything. This man launched an attack on a police station," he told a local news station. 

"Officers weren't in the process of apprehending him or engaging him in any way. They were going about their business on a Sunday afternoon, at their home, when they were attacked."

Two of the men in custody, Malik and Michael Ford, have been reported as brothers. The third, unidentified suspect, is also being reported as a brother. Reports indicate that the trio may have been attempting to initiate a suicide by cop scenario.

Officer Colson was a four-year veteran of the police force and had been working in an undercover capacity at the time of his death.
