Lakewood Police Ambush Suspect Shot, Killed by Seattle Officer

December 01, 2009  | 

Seattle Police shot and killed murder suspect Maurice Clemmons this morning, Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer told The News Tribune.

Pierce County Sheriffs had supplied Seattle and other police agencies information about possible acquaintances of Clemmons, and, acting upon that information, Seattle Police contacted Clemmons in the Rainier Valley, Troyer said.

The acquaintances apparently were former prisoners.

Troyer, speaking at about 3:30 a.m., was on his way to meet with Seattle Police. He said the shooting happened about roughly 30 to 45 minutes earlier.

The fast work of the officers should be commended. My hope is that the "Suspect", was the right individual and the officers had no choice but to use deadly force.

Lets not rush to judgement. The investigators should make sure that no stone goes unturned. If there are more suspects out there; ferret them out. They should all be held accountable for these cowardly acts.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Let's see. The report says this "suspect" has a bullet wound from one of the victim officers and is armed with one of their guns when he is killed. I don't find it a stretch to believe they have the right guy.

This Officer was almost #5, thank God he was so attentive of his surrounding's. He also saved the family's of the slain officers the heart ache of a trial. They also have my deepest condolences
