    Bad: Female Officer Killed, Fleeing Suspect Shot By Police

    Female Officer Killed, Fleeing Suspect Shot By Police - News Story - KIRO Seattle

    SEQUIM, Wash. -- Police shot and killed a man Saturday night that they say was a suspect in the shooting death of a female police officer earlier in the day.

    The Clallam County Sheriff's Department confirmed that Shawn Roe, a 36-year-old man from Sequim was killed by police as he left a convenience store near the Seven Cedars Casino sometime after 9 p.m.

    Roe died when he allegedly pulled a gun on police and police opened fire.

    Roe's killing happened as the Washington State Patrol and other police agencies were investigating the shooting death of a U.S. Forest Service officer on a road near this town in Clallam County.

    Late in the day, the patrol identified the dead officer as Kris Fairbanks, a 51-year-old woman from Forks.

    According the the Forest Service website, Fairbanks was a certified K-9 officer.

    State Patrol Trooper Krista Hedstrom said that at about 2:40 p.m. Saturday afternoon, Faribanks observed a van on a forest road near Sequim.

    The van did not have license plates. Fairbanks made contact with the occupant of the van and radioed back some information to her headquarters.

    When the headquarters tried to call the officer back there was no response.

    Clallam County Sheriffs deputies and the State Patrol responded to the scene where the officer made the stop and found her dead.

    The area is known as Forest Road 2880 which is off Palo Alto Road.

    Officer Fairbanks was the second female officer to be shot to death while on duty in less than a month in Western Washington. Skagit County Deputy Anne Jackson was shot and killed during a shooting rampage September 2 in the town of Alger.

    The Killer was probably trying to get around the Border Patrol check points.
    Not that he would have been able to, because they are set up in places that all traffic is funneled through that one area, there are no roads that go through.

    It's too bad the scumbag did not have to suffer a lot before he died...this excuse for a human being was wasting O2 for far too long...OMO...

    Cool

    Don't mean to ruffle any feathers nor do I mean it as an insult to any, but...
    I've often considered jobs such as U.S. Forest Service and state Parks & Wildlife as being one of the most dangerous there are, period.
    The percentage of people that they see, approach and interact with that are armed is in general very high and the encounters usually occur in desolate places. Not a good recipe for a good outcome.
    Even with less than optimum manpower available, I can't for the life of me understand why they usually patrol solo rather than with partners in those circumstances. Not good odds.

    P7fanatic, I agree.

    I'm glad they got that O2 waster!
    Man, I love that area too. Never had any problems there.....but I was never unarmed either. RIP Kris.

    I read the story yesterday, not realizing that Kris Fairbanks is the same Kris Fairbanks whose husband is from my small hometown (700 people) of Skagway, Alaska. Small world, and horrible to hear that she was killed in this way. My prayers to her family. It is my understanding she has a teenage daughter (from discussing this with my mother today), so she could use the prayers too.

    + 1.... im starting to wish we would cut off one hand of all violent offenders when we let them out of prison when their sentence is done.
    it at least would slow them down some and give better odds to their next intended victim, after they get out.

    "In 2006 Mary White resigned as a teacher in Lacey after she brought a gun and bullets to school to protect her from her ex-husband.
    She says looking back she regrets that decision, but says the deaths over the weekend prove her fears were justified.
    "I feel she was vindicated in that respect," said Byrd, the Mason County chief deputy. "She was completely right. All of her fears were founded."


    Too bad it took an event like this to show she was right in believing she needed to armed to maintain some form of safety (meaning an ability to fight back).


    Patti White (mary's mother) filed a petition claiming Roe scratched her car with his keys, threatened to burn her house down, and said he was going to "shove her teeth down" her throat. She was so afraid for such a long time that her husband taught her how to handle a gun and, for a period, she carried a small firearm with her at all times, she said

    When Mom feels she has to be armed as well it's time to take a close at the specific cause of these fears. Also too bad that won't ever happen when it needs to.

    Just out of curiosity, was the Forest Service Officer armed? I understand that many "rangers" are not.
