Suspect captured in Iowa police officer murders


A suspect in the deadly shooting of two Des Moines area police officers was captured Wednesday, police confirmed to CBS News.

Police in Urbandale, Iowa, confirmed that 46-year-old Scott Michael Greene was in custody.

The shootings happened less than 2 miles apart and both took place along main streets that cut through residential areas.

The shootings follow a spate of police killings, including ambushes of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Five officers were killed in Dallas on July 7 and three were killed later that month in Baton Rouge.
