Suspect in
shooting of 7
officers bragged
about gun skills
The Associated Press

The Vietnam veteran and
disbarred lawyer accused
of shooting seven law en-

ing one, bragged online
about his marksmanship
and love for the “smell of
gunpowder” in the years
before the deadly standoff,

posts unearthed Thursday
Frederick Hopkins
lost his law license in the
1980s for mishandling
money and faced several
minor criminal charges
in recent years, including
disorderly conduct in 2014.
It was around the time of
his disbarment that he got
serious about amateur tar-
get-shooting, according to
the records and posts.
More details also
emerged about the two-
hour standoff in which
authorities say Hopkins’
gunfire prevented officers
from rescuing comrades
who lay bleeding on the
ground. The slain officer,
a 30-year veteran, was
tearfully described as the
“epitome of a community
police officer” by his chief.
