Assassin Tries To Kill Police OfficerCaptain Robert Johnson was getting ready for work in his home in South Carolina. The officer, a prison guard at the Lee Correctional Institution, which he knew was trouble.
Johnson knew that this wasn’t the police. He also knew he had to do whatever he could to protect his wife. Finally, he knew that this visitor may have had something to do with a stranger who he encountered the previous day.
“I instantly knew this was a hit,” he confirmed in an interview. “I came out of the bathroom and yelled to try and draw the guy away from the bedroom because my wife was in there. I drew him to me…”
Officer Describes Frightening Incident
The Daily Caller reports:
“His diversion plan worked. The assassin came down the hallway and tussled with him, while his wife was able to escape to the front yard. But during the struggle, the attacker raised his gun and fired six times into Johnson’s stomach and chest.”
“The hit was connected to the massive influx of contraband cellphones in Johnson’s prison, where he’d worked for 15 years. Prisoners smuggle these phones into the correctional facilities so inmates running gang-related activities can still call the shots on the outside.”
“They put them in inmates’ rectums, hollowed-out Bibles, or footballs thrown over a fence, bandages and prosthetic legs, and anything else they can think of to get the phone to the inside.”
More Suspected Murders From Prison Release
“A couple bullets went through me and landed on the floor,” he said. “So he must have been standing over me shooting me, that’s how much he wanted me dead the doctor said I was literally dead when I got in the helicopter. Doctors thought I was going to die,” he said.
Another inmate who escaped prison in July is suspected of murdering the assistant warden’s daughter and there are other examples in South Carolina and Georgia as revenge for prison issues.
