Burayu town police commander, commissioner Solomon Tadesse (pictured above), is reportedly shot dead in Burayu town, which a little of 20 kilometers from the capital Addis Ababa.
BBC Amharic service cited Oromia regional State communication office head, Getachew Balcha, to report that three other men who were with Commander Solomon were also shot.
Among them were “Finfine special zone” special police commander Tesfaye Dinku who is said to be getting medical help at the Korean Hospital in the capital Addis Ababa.
The other man who was shot along with the police commanders is a musician, but the Getachew Balcha did not disclose his identity.
No entity took responsibility for the attack so far. Police did not establish the identity of suspects, and no arrest is made so far, Getachew Balcha told BBC Amharic service.
He is cited as saying that the attack happened as Commander Solomon Tadesse was having lunch near Burayu Town.
It is unclear if the condition of those who are in Korean Hospital in the capital Addis Ababa is life-threatening or otherwise.

SONG LYRICS ” I Shot The Sheriff ”
Song by Bob Marley
(I shot the sheriff, but I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no, oh
I shot the sheriff, but I didn’t shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Yeah, all around in my home town
They’re tryin’ to track me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy
For the life of a deputy, but I say
Oh, now, now, oh
(I shot the sheriff) the sheriff
(But I swear it was in self defense) oh, no (oh, oh, ooh)
Yeah, I say, I shot the sheriff oh, Lord! (and they say it is a capital offense)
Yeah! (oh, oh, ooh) yeah
Sheriff John Brown always hated me
For what, I don’t know
Every time I plant a seed
He said kill it before it grow
He said kill them before they grow, and so
Read it in the news! (I shot the sheriff) oh, Lord
(But I swear it was in self-defense)
Where was the deputy? (oh, oh, ooh)
I say, I shot the sheriff
But I swear it was in self defense, yeah (ooh)
Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town, yeah
All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down
So I shot, I shot, I shot him down and I say
If I am guilty I will pay
I didn’t shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh) oh no
(I shot the sheriff) I did
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh (oh, oh, ooh)
Reflexes had got the better of me
And what is to be must be
Every day the bucket a-go a well
One day the bottom a-go drop out
One day the bottom a-go drop out, I say
I, I, I, I, shot the sheriff
Lord, I didn’t shot the deputy, no
I, I (shot the sheriff)
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, yeah
The acting Mayor Menilik Alemayehu of Addis Ababa should take charge , by limiting the authority of the acting deputy mayor of Addis Ababa TAKELE Uma TO only TECHNICAL engineering issues , since acting Deputy Mayor (Engineer) TAKElE Uma proven that he is NOT able to perform city ADMINISTRATION works since it is not his responsibility or his field of expertise. Deputy Mayor (Engineer) TAKElE Uma expertise is on engineering so Menilik Alemayehu need to wake up and take charge of the city from the federals who back up the deputy mayor instead of the Mayor. Same should be done in Burayu by the residents taking charge not the federal appointed thugs taking charge of Burayu as they did for the last two years.
I hope this murder doesnot create obstacle on the year 2018’s Burayu massacre’s investigation.
