Police surround Seattle home where person of interest in police shooting may be hiding A SWAT team and police negotiators surrounded a Leschi home in Seattle where the man sought for questioning in the Lakewood police shooting may be hiding. By Seattle Times staff A SWAT team and police negotiators surrounded a Leschi home in Seattle where the man sought for questioning in the Lakewood police shooting may be hiding. Police responded to the home at East Yesler Way and 32nd Avenue South where police stopped a woman who was leaving the home. She told them Maurice Clemmons was on the property and bleeding, according to a law enforcement source. The woman told police that someone had dropped Clemmons off at the home. The source also said police had received tips about two other properties they needed to search, in Queen Anne and Renton. At 8:44 p.m., Seattle police received information that the person of interest may be in a Leschi home, according to Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel. Police are now trying to confirm the identity of the person inside. Police blocked off the street at East Yesler and 30th Avenue South. Police are telling residents to stay indoors and keep their doors locked.

From another neighborhood news site:

SWAT officers have surrounded a home in the Leschi neighborhood and are apparently looking for the person of interest sought in connection with this morning’s shooting in Parkland.

The home is on E Superior Street and Erie Avenue.

K9 and negotiator units are on scene.

Seattle police spokesman Sean Whitcomb would only say the SWAT call out “may be” related to the murder of four officers in Parkland this morning. The registered owner of the home shares a last name of the person of interest in the shooting, Maurice Clemmons.

jseattle is on the way to the scene. We’ll update this as we learn more.

Update: According to scanner traffic, the suspect involved here is wounded and armed. Anyone in the area of the stand-off should stay in their homes and away from windows.

9:53PM - Media helicopters causing trouble - Just heard Car 7, who I think is now McDonagh, telling news helicopters to back off because they are “compromising safety”
10:07PM - Big Perimeter - FYI - The perimeter for this operation is huge, as far east as 32nd Ave and several blocks north and south of Yesler. If you live in that area, don’t leave as it could be some time before you can get home. If you’re currently out and trying to get back home, it’s unlikely that you’ll be allowed until the whole thing is over.

Note that stand-offs often last for hours.

10:18PM - Prepare for noise - It sounds like the tempo of SWAT operations is picking up. If you live in the area, be prepared for lots of loud noises. They’ve got a big arsenal and it is very, very loud.

Stay in your homes, away from windows, and don’t bother calling 911 if you hear what sounds like gunshots.

The other problem is Seattle cops--being Seattle cops-- might shoot him with beanbag rounds.

The article quotes the investigators as stating they had “no motive” for the shootings. If the victims had been black and the shooter white, it would immediately have been classified a “hate crime”. Here goes the anti-white PC double standard crap again. From liberal Washington State. Every time a black person offs white folk, investigators have to “search” for a “motive”.

They switched to the SWAT attack freq about 15min ago, so you wont here much from here on except for traffic control. But if gunfire happens expect it all to light up.

K9 and negotiator units are on scene.

Send the negotiators home, but leave the K-9's.

Then tell him to get his a$$ out the front door!

(There may be some colateral damage to the front door.)

KING 5 (.com) has this short blub. No streaming video, though.

PARKLAND, Wash. – Seattle police cordoned off a section of Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood Sunday night, believing they had located the person of interest in the shooting deaths of four Lakewood, Wash. police officers.

Police cruisers surrounded streets in the neighborhood of 30th Avenue and Yesler Way in the search for Maurice Clemmons.

Thanks for the info. I thought that they must have moved to a secure freq because of the lack of chatter. Is Seattle a big enough city that a live camera crew might be dispatched by a news station?

The police had better be extra careful approaching that house.
Clemmons is extremely dangerous and a clever individual. Who knows if he has bombs set to go off or if he’s in a hidden area ready to fire upon the officers coming through the door?

I’m remembering the Pittsburgh oficers who were gunned down while approaching a suspect’s home about a year ago.

I’d say that murdering 4 cops could be called a hate crime.

If this guy IS the murderer, I hope he bleeds to death before medical assistance arrives.

My guess is that Mary Mapes of Rathergate infamy is a typical liberal POS for the Seattle news biz, especially TV.... I understand that she spent a good part of her career working for the CBS affiliate in Seattle before her “performance” as a doctrinaire PC liberal hack brought her to the national network.

It’s no stretch at all to suspect that most of the reporters and producers dealing with this story are more interested in looking for ways to slam the police than anything else..... though they may tread a lot more lightly due to the 4 police deaths this morning.... how many liberals will dare to show max. sympathy for the perp in this case? We’ll see.....

Hopefully he will bleed-out soon,,,

Back off till 06:00 then hit the house with the gas,,,

That will either drive him out so they can get a clean shot

or he will burn in the house...
