"The two attackers are believed to be Hispanic, driving a grey late model Chevy Suburban with temporary tags on the outside that expired in September. The driver is about six feet tall wearing a black long sleeve T-shirt. The passenger is about 5’10 with a white long sleeve T-shirt. They both have medium builds and were wearing jeans. If you spot them don’t approach them, call 911 immediately."
The suspect description in the article is not much to go on, but hopefully the two perps are caught quickly and given some swift justice."never bring paws to a gunfight" - Jenna

Well Wishes for a Speedy Recovery Officer Smith.
Car stops are the worst, you never know who or what may be in there, thankfully his shield deflected that shot and he had good reflexes to duck the knife. Hope the two perps have been picked up and pose no more danger to any other LEO or civilians.
Be Safe out there, wear your vests!

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
