“’Horror scene’ as 4 Lakewood police officers shot, killed”
By KOMO Staff
SNIPPET: “LAKEWOOD, Wash. - Four uniformed police officers were shot and killed in a bloody Sunday morning ambush at a Lakewood-area coffee shop, officials said.
Pierce County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ed Troyer called the ambush “a targeted attack” on the four Lakewood police officers as they were preparing to start their shifts at about 8:15 a.m.”
SNIPPET: “Three male officers and one female officer all died at the scene.
State Attorney General Rob McKenna termed the shootings an “assassination.”
About 2 1/2 hours after the deadly ambush, officers identified a white Chevy pickup truck abandoned at 134th Street and Pacific Avenue South that is believed to be the one that the suspect fled in.”
SNIPPET: “A $10,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect or any possible accomplices, Troyer said. An emergency tip line has been set up, at 866-977-2362, for callers to report any helpful information.
The suspect was described as a black male in his mid-20s to mid-30s, standing 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-10, medium build, with scruffy facial hair, wearing blue jeans and a black coat with a hood.”
How long did it take them to get out the description of the suspect? They knew the minute it happened...
many threads on this already....
HERE’S THE TIP LINE:
Tip Line: 866-977-2362
That’s ok, this my thread.
OFF TOPIC, but fyi.

The shooter was apparently a passing motorist, who pulled up next to them and opened fire.

expect many non-associated arrests and detentions after this. They will be searching the area ID possible suspects. In that area, I’d bet 10% of the population have warrants from other crimes.
Where the information is always solid.

Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the officers - four male and one female - were in full uniform and wearing bulletproof vests, sitting in Forza coffee shop near 116th Street and Steele Street on the east side of the Air Force base at about 8:30 a.m.”
SNIPPET: “Troyer said there were several active scenes that officers were working. A white pick-up truck was impounded from a parking lot at one scene and a person was taken into custody at another.”
SNIPPET: “Troyer said the suspect is a black male, 5-foot-7 to 6 feet tall, 20s to 30s, scruffy appearance, wearing a black coat with a gray sweatshirt underneath, and blue jeans.
A $10,000 reward is being offered for information. Tips can be called in to (253) 591-5959 or 866-977-2362.
A prayer vigil for the officers and their families will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at Tacoma Champions Centre at 1819 E. 72nd St. in Tacoma. Directions to the Tacoma Campus.”

Of course, my prayers and condolences to the family and friends of these four brave and needed officers.
My first thought was how in the world did this happen? These people were highly trained professionals and knew how to react in different situations. Even now, after 42 years, when I do go to a restaurant, I am adamant about where I sit. Driving thru a city I constantly am looking around, checking my mirrors, never stopping close to the vehicle in front of me, always a way of escape.
I by no means am criticizing these brave Americans. But I do wonder.
Again, my prayers and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of these 4 American heroes.
Looking at photos here:
Could very well be. I wouldn't rule it out. I think the Islamofacists have a thing against law enforcement and could be out to avenge the killing of Luqman by the FBI in Detroit.
I’ve been live blogging it, Miss Cindy, in case you’re just now catching up with the action.
Very interesting theory...
Thank you, Cindy. I’ve been up the Hills with Mr. RR (would you believe panning for gold?) all day and this is the first I’ve heard of this tragic event. My Dad was stationed at McChord in the ‘50s. We used to live in Parkland. It was a beautiful and quiet area then. That was back in the era of poodle skirts, bobby sox and very early Elvis.
I appreciate your thread and your info is always solid.
More photos here at this photo gallery:
Thanks as always Dinah Lord.

“WA: 4 police officers shot dead in ambush.”
SNIPPET: “Miscellaneous follow up: The suspect taken into custody in Parkland and referenced down thread is related to the earlier 911 prank call - what a dope. I hope they throw the book at him:
Police took a man into custody at a Parkland house nearby after he apparently called 911, claiming to be the shooter. But the man was not linked to the crime, Troyer said.”
I was just discussing it with my husband and he brought it up as we were rehashing recent jihad-related events.
First of all, God bless and keep the souls of the 4 police officers murdered this morning, and comfort their families, friends and co-workers at this terrible time.
Cindy, I heard this morning on radio when the story broke or soon after, that the suspects were one white male and one black male. But your info seems to allege one suspect only.
At this time...it does seem 1 suspect involved, but it’s still breaking news.

For further reading...some earlier threads on the topic:
If it is ROP, they will come up with a reason that made his so stressed, he just had to kill some police.
Excellent, Dinah. I put your blog link on my homepage too.
Abandon Chevy truck means the shooter had a second get away car in the escape plan. Shooter is long gone from area. Cops better establish a wider dragnet of road blocks/checkpoints.
