CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq – Insurgents killed a woman, an Iraqi policeman, and wounded two children and one male in an attack in their home in northern Ramadi Wednesday.

Iraqi police from the Albu Faraj police station immediately responded to the gunmen’s attack and administered first aid to the victims. All the casualties were taken to the police station, and then transported to a Coalition medical facility for additional treatment.

Iraqi police learned during their investigation that the gunmen entered the building, asked if a policeman lived in the home, shot everyone inside, and then left the scene.

The Albu Faraj police received an intelligence report detailing the location of the gunmen involved. The police raided the suspected gunmen’s hideout. As a result, 13 suspected insurgents were detained for questioning in relation to the incident.
