Malo Gomez shot at the cops because he was "bored"

Malo Gomez needs a different hobby.
Malo Gomez felt like firing off a few rounds, and he allegedly picked one of the worst targets possible: A cop car, with two cops sitting inside of it.

Two Minneapolis Police officers were in the middle of a routine traffic stop at the Union Liquor store on the 3200 block of Penn Avenue North, when suddenly bullets started hitting the side of the squad car. The cops inside ducked for cover, and neither was hit.

When the shooting stopped, the cops -- one of them grabbing a rifle from the trunk -- tried to find the shooter. They couldn't; nor could backup officers and police K-9 units. Not even some high-tech police work was enough to connect Gomez to the shooting.

Gomez, a known gang affiliate, was only arrested for shooting  at the police because he'd been bragging about it to his friends, according to the complaint from the Hennpin County Attorny's Office.

After the police crime lab used lasers to determine the trajectory of the bullets -- with both cops ducking for cover, neither could track the shooter's location -- investigators found nine discharged shell casings in a vacant lot near an apartment building.

After the word on the street was that Gomez, whom police claim is an affiliate of the Stick up Boys gang, had shot at the cops, police tracked him down in Hennepin County Jail on unrelated charges. At first Gomez denied the accusation, but then made a stunning confession, according to the complaint: Yes, he'd shot at the police, but only because he was "bored," and "wanted to fire the gun off."

Gomez is facing two counts of first-degree attempted murder, a crime that comes with a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and two counts of first-degree assault, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.

Great. Honestly, great.

Another youth lost through the cracks of society. He wasn't a bad kid, no matter how the blotter wants to stain his reputation. Stick up boys? Come on.

The truth of the matter is that Malo Gomez didn't shoot at the cops out of boredom. Boredom? That's a joke. This is clearly, undeniably, another tragedy purported by Famous Dave's.

Don't know what I mean? Look up Dakota Rey, you'll see.

Famous Dave's is painting this entire tragedy as an act of boredom, boredom brought on by the lack of famous dave's near 35 on lake. And that's bullshit, there are FD's all over the city, you can get their barbecue ANYWHERE. Why do we need a new FD's in this neighborhood.

And here's a better question: why does famous dave's need to ruin the life of a child just so they can draw attention to their franchise?

wow!What?

Yeah, I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before you wind up in the slam with him.  Maybe we'll be lucky with you and the cops will get their rifles out faster.

Fuck that shit.  He shot at the cops.  I don't care WHAT his reason was - boredom or otherwise!  I wish they'd found him with that rifle.  Save taxpayer money.  People that defective will never do ANYthing but drag down society.  One shot with that rifle could have fixed the problem.

Joe you sound racist as hell. I'm a young black man , and I find this very sad that you would say such a thing. You ass whole want you go take one of your kids and shoot them. Talking about taxpayer money you must be a rich jack ass who don't t care about people. Poeple like you will bring society down, why are we in a recession because of black people or poor people no because of them stinking ass billion airs who run this run.

And you must be a black person who thinks that just because this guy is black and that he comes from a poor area and that some "man" somewhere is conspiring to keep him down that we should let his behavior slide because it is a byproduct of the circumstances under which he was raised. Fuck that. I'm not saying that we should kill everyone that commits a crime, but this kid is so damned stupid that he fires a gun, for no reason whatsoever, at a couple of cops. First of all, the only reason this kid is not in a body bag right now is because he was probably holding the gun sideways "like a gangsta" and those cops were quick as hell to jump in their car. Second, no matter what your views on morality and the responsibility we have to our citizenry are, you cannot deny that we have too many people in prison in this country and that they are sucking an insane amount of taxpayer money up. Why should we have to pay to keep these animals in cages? When a dog bites a person, we don't put it in a kennel til it dies, we put that animal down. Chances are this man will never amount to anything in life. He will spend decades in prison learning that crime is the only option in life and he'll get better at being a criminal. If he makes it out of prison, a big "if" given the stupidity of this man, he is more than likely to end up back in jail in less than five years. So, what is the point? I don't believe that we can just go around killing alleged criminals, but in this case, maybe it would have served the greater good to just "pop a cap in this guy's ass," to use the offender's parlance.
