December 01, 2009
Maurice Clemmons, the suspect wanted in the slaying of four Lakewood police officers, was shot and killed by a Seattle police officer in South Seattle early this morning.
Clemmons, who was armed with a handgun taken from one of the officers he is accused of killing, was standing outside in the 4400 block of South Kenyon Street when he was confronted by a South Precinct patrol officer. He refused commands to stop and was shot by the officer about 2:45 a.m.
According to Seattle Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel, the officer, who's been with the department seven years, was on patrol when he came upon a car that had been reported stolen. The car was running.
The officer was in his patrol car processing the stolen vehicle report when he noticed a man was approaching the patrol car and recognized him as possibly being Clemmons, Pugel said.
