Two St. Paul Police officers were ambushed by a gunman behind Hope Community Academy on Payne Avenue last October.

Officer Daniel King was struck twice, once in the back and once in the left forearm.  He is now recuperating and hoping to return to the force. His partner, Officer Brian Wanschura, was unhurt and his back on the street credited with saving his partner's life.

In this raw video clip, the two officers discuss the incident with KSTP reporter Jay Kolls.
