Seattle PD Investigates Link Between Officer's Slaying, Patrol Car Arson
November 03, 2009
Seattle police are looking for possible ties between Saturday's fatal shooting of veteran Officer Timothy Brenton in the Leschi area and the torching nine days earlier of four police vehicles at a city maintenance yard.
Both were "very well-planned and targeted attacks," police spokesman Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said Monday as officials continued to investigate the shootings of Brenton and officer-trainee Britt Sweeney, who suffered minor injuries.
Police officials said Brenton and Sweeney, who came under fire while sitting in a parked patrol car, didn't appear to be specifically targeted, but were stalked because they were police officers.
