Police Believe Lakewood Cop-Killing Suspect May Be Dead
November 30, 2009
Maurice Clemmons, the man suspected of killing four Lakewood police officers Sunday in a Parkland coffee shop, was shot and perhaps seriously wounded by one of the officers before fleeing, Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said this morning.
"He has suffered a gunshot wound," Troyer said at a media briefing held just before 3 a.m.
Troyer said police know that Clemmons was wounded because they have detained other people — Troyer wouldn't say how many — who helped Clemmons after the shootings.
At the briefing, Troyer said police now consider Clemmons a suspect, rather than merely a "person of interest."
Police don't know the severity of Clemmons' wound, and Troyer said he may already be dead.
