An Iowa man suspected of killing two police officers in separate gun attacks as they sat in their squad cars remained in the hospital on Thursday for treatment of an existing medical condition and has not yet been charged, a police spokesman said.

Scott Michael Greene, 46, was arrested after turning himself in to authorities hours after the shootings early on Wednesday in Des Moines and the city's suburb of Urbandale."He's still at the area hospital, and I cannot release any medical information at this time," said Urbandale Police Department spokesman Sergeant Chad Underwood.

The body of the first victim, Urbandale officer Justin Martin, 24, was found in his cruiser near the local high school where Greene was expelled by police last month after waving a Confederate flag during a football game.

The body of Des Moines Police Department Sergeant Anthony Bemino, 38, was discovered some 20 minutes later about 2 miles (3 km) away.
