Nashville Police Officer Lured Into Ambush

By Ethan Cole on
 May 7, 2021

Currently, public opinion of law enforcement is fairly low. Lawmakers and celebrities' are continually using their platforms to continue to push anti-police rhetoric.

Would-be criminals and those having mental health crisis' can see this as an opportunity to lure officers into harmful situations.

911 Call Response

Nashville officers responded to a 911 call a little before 6:15 in the evening. According to WKRN, Officer Brian Sherman and two other officers responded to the home on Sugarloaf Drive.

The caller had told the 911 operator that "his brother had shot his mother and gunshots were being fired inside the residence." Officers knew that they could possibly be walking into a tense sitiation.

When they arrived, they exited their vehicles and knocked on the door of the home. Right after the knock, the door was opened and shots were immediately fired at the three officers.


The officers did not shoot back. The shooter, 22-year-old Salman Mohamed, came out of the home on his own.

The officers tried negotiating with the Mohamed, who was still armed with the rifle. However, Mohamed did not want to be talked down or taken to jail.

He put the rifle to his head and pulled the trigger, killing himself in front of the officers.

According to Metro police spokesperson, Don Aaron, they believe that the call was just a lure to get the offices out to the home.

“We believe the person who made the 911 call is Mohamed himself. On the 911 call, you can hear him saying that he’s scared. That shots are continuing to be fired. ‘Hurry — hurry. Please get here in a hurry.'”

Don Aaron, Metro Police


Mohamed's family shared that he had been having some mental health issues and struggling. The families attorney also said he was normally "an overachieving, gifted student."

Officer Sherman, who was shot in the left arm, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was treated and released. Sherman is now recovering at his home.

Investigations into why the shooting happened in the first place are underway.

Tough Situations

False calls are tough situations for law enforcement to deal with. They walk in with the information they have from 911 and quickly have to switch gears.

    1. Yes, they should have sent the leading local Democrat politician since that would have been a win-win all around.

    2. Just like someone else said they should have sent in a leading DemonRat and let them handle it since thats what they want, our cops gone! So the military and they can rule! No other reason then to teach our young military people racial inequality and hate so when they say shoot those Americans that disagree with us, they will! The longer Patriots in this country wait the worse its going to be for all of us! Right now these pond scum (Antifa/CAIR/BLM/Moslem Brotherhood) that have "all" Partnered, will be to remove from our country!!! Its well past the time that WE THE PEOPLE should have waited! I know the man that had to pay 10out of 12 cars to show up to his rallies DID NOT beat out Trump that had thousands upon thousands of supporters show up to his! I know with this illegitimate President/Admin as well as Senate and i bet if anyone bothered to check an Illegitimate Congress as well, will try to impose their laws upon the FREE people of this country and i will for one will never abide by any policies, laws or executive orders this ILLEGITIMATE Government tries to impose! PERIOD!!!

  1. I feel when shots were fited at these officers they dhould havs returned fire right then and there.

  2. In the Boston Globe this week a letter was sent to the Letter to the Editor from a Social Worker who said she would never go to a mental health call for her unless escorted by the Boston Police 👮 👮‍♂️. When the Woke and Fake News excoriate the men and women in blue. Remember the men and women in blue who took their Oath of Office to serve and protect answer their calls when dispatched. When they leave their families, they know they may not come home. 💙💙👮👮‍♂️🇺🇸

  3. I have a question: If white people are so dangerous and evil, why are there now so many interracial marriages? If the police are so racial, why are they called so often to resolve situations? This is so much bull it's ridiculous! Whine, riot, destroy, murder, and demand whites give even more to ne'er-do-wells!! Get off your duffs and become active citizens who are proud off your own accomplishments, and you'll be able to look at yourselves in any mirror and not be disgusted with yourself to the point of hating and blaming everyone but yourself for your plight in life!!!

  4. Sandy Raymond,
    Great comment....I'm keeping a list of those in America who have common sense...adding your are the third one I've found so far!

  5. And Obama wanted MORE muslims in this country. I have met some, and some were fine people. WOULD I trust them? NO! Islam is a pagan religion. It is a religion of NO PEACE if you aren't a muslim, and then these "peaceful muslims" can't even get along . I suggest a certain tyrant who ruled with an iron fist in Saudi Arabia and in other countries . Khomeini for one. How many Christians did he kill? How many in Afghanistan , Kuwait, Saudi Arabia , Egypt , Iran, Iraq , and so many other places. How many HONOR KILLINGS in England , France , Germany , America , Italy , and other places.
