This is horrifying:

A gunman wearing a bulletproof vest and “lying in wait” opened fire on officers responding to a domestic disturbance call Saturday, killing three of them and turning a quiet Pittsburgh street into a battlefield, police said.

Police Chief Nate Harper said the motive for the shooting isn’t clear, but friends said the gunman recently had been upset about losing his job and feared the Obama administration was poised to ban guns.

Richard Poplawski, 23, met officers at the doorway and shot two of them in the head immediately, Harper said. An officer who tried to help the two also was killed.

Poplawski, armed with an assault rifle and two other guns, then held police at bay for four hours as the fallen officers were left bleeding nearby, their colleagues unable to reach them, according to police and witnesses. More than 100 rounds were fired by the SWAT teams and Poplawski, Harper said.

The three slain officers were Eric Kelly, 41, Stephen Mayhle, 29, and Paul Sciullo III, 37. Kelly had been on the force for 14 years, Mayhle and Sciullo for two years each. Another officer, Timothy McManaway, was shot in the hand and a fifth broke his leg on a fence.

Keep the families in your prayers:

Stephen Mayhle

– Was a two-year veteran officer

– Survived by wife Chandra and daughters Jennifer and Brooklyn

Eric Kelly

– Was a 14-year veteran officer

– Survived by wife Marina and daughters Timyka, Autumn and Janel

Paul Sciullo III

– Was a two-year veteran

– Survived by his parents and three siblings

From the same side of the political aisle that champions police killers Mumia abu Jamal and Tookie Williams comes a new round of indignant finger-pointing:

You killed all the innocent people at the Binghamton immigration center.

You killed these police officers.

It’s all your fault.
