ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump offered prayers for the families of the two Iowa police officers shot and killed in separate ambush-style attacks. Speaking at a rally in Miami, Florida, Trump said, "An attack on our police is an attack on all of us." The suspect, Scott Michael Greene, has been taken into custody. Police said it was unclear what provoked the attacks. The shootings represented the latest attacks on police in the United States during a time of intense public debate over race and the criminal justice system in America. Police said they found the first slain officer's body at about 1:06 a.m. (2.06 a.m. ET) in Urbandale, and the second about 20 minutes later about two miles (3 km) away in Des Moines. Police declined to release the names of the officers awaiting notification of their families.
