Officials: Coast Guardsman Shot 2 Colleagues, Ambushed Cops

Thursday, 05 Feb 2015 04:55 PM

A Coast Guardsman who authorities say shot two colleagues at a Cape Cod condo complex before opening fire on police officers has been identified as a 31-year-old Virginian.

Adrian Loya, of Chesapeake, Virginia, pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges Thursday in Massachusetts. A judge ordered him to be held without bail and to undergo a mental health examination.

His lawyer didn't return a message seeking comment Thursday afternoon.

The series of events left one woman dead and another woman and a police officer wounded. Their names haven't been released.

Authorities allege Loya shot the two women early Thursday in the town of Bourne, lit a car on fire to hamper police, planted fake bombs and then opened fire on officers.
