    4 Police Officers Shot Dead Near Washington State Air Force Base

    SEATTLE — Four police officers were shot dead in an ambush at a Washington state coffee house, a sheriff's official said Sunday.

    The attack occurred near McChord Air Force Base in Parkland, Wash.

    Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer tells Seattle's KOMO-TV that the officers were hit near 116th Street and Steele Street on the east side of the Air Force base at about 8:30 a.m. local time.

    The officers were shot at Forza Coffee, the News Tribune of Tacoma reported.

    Troyer told The News Tribune in Tacoma that the officers were sitting in the coffee shop with their computers when the shooter came in Sunday morning.

    He says investigators believe the officers were targeted, and it was not a robbery.

    Troyer tells the newspaper "it was just a flat out ambush."

    He could not immediately say what agency the officers were from.

    4 LEOs AMBUSHED & KILLED-PARKLAND WA

    4 LEOs were just AMBUSHED & Killed in Parkland WA ( a suburb of Tacoma WA)
    Although @ this time info is "sketchy" here is what I know.
    1. 4 officers were ambushed & killed as they sat in a Restaurant, working on their computers.
    2. 1 or 2 Suspects, came in & killed all 4 in COLD BLOOD.
    3. Although the restaurant was full of other customers, ONLY the LEOs were TARGETED

    Sounds like some 'serious' gang activity, and if this is true, this isn't going to go well for the gang community.

    I just saw this on TV a few minutes ago. Shocking. A flat-out ambush of 4 people sworn to protect and serve. I don't even know what else to say...

    Prayers and condolences to family and friends of the officers. Let's hope these unspeakable excuses of human beings and their friends are rapidly rounded up--nah shot while being captured; save us the expenses of a trial and housing.

    It has got to be gang stuff; maybe committing a crime as a gang member should get an automatic 20 years. Maybe harming cops (death or not) as part of a gang initiation should be elevated to life or more.

    We can't let the USA become Juarez. That's the bottom line.

    4 police officers killed in Wash. coffee shop
    Sheriff's official: Gunman opened fire in 'execution'-style attack


    BREAKING NEWS
    msnbc.com news services
    updated 15 minutes ago
    PARKLAND, Wash. - A gunman walked into a coffee shop and shot and killed four police officers Sunday morning in what sheriff's officials described as an "execution."

    The officers were sitting in the cafe at a strip mall near the Tacoma suburb of Parkland with their laptop computers, preparing for their day shifts, when a man came in and opened fire, Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.

    The officers were obviously targeted because they were in full uniform and no one else was shot at, Troyer said.

    "This was more of an execution. He walked in with the mind of shooting police officers," Troyer said.

    It wasn't immediately known if any of the officers were able to return fire. They were declared dead at the scene.

    Troyer said two employees and a few customers were in the Forza Coffee shop at the time but no one else was hurt. "As you can imagine they are all traumatized," Troyer said.

    Authorities scoured the area for the gunman, who is believed to have fled on foot or by car. The suspect was described as a "scruffy"-looking black man in his 20s or 30s, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10, wearing a black coat ands blue jeans.

    "We are in the process of searching multiple locations," Troyer said.

    Nearby McChord Air Force Base was put on alert.

    No advance threats
    The victims were three males and one female, all officers with the Lakewood Police Department southwest of Tacoma, Troyer said.

    There were no specific advance threats against the officers, Troyer said.

    A $10,000 reward was being offered for information leading to those responsible.

    Brad Carpenter, the founder of Forza Coffee, is a retired police officer himself, NBC News reported. Carpenter started Forza in 2002 and now has 21 stores, primarily in the Tacoma area.

    Troyer said there was no known link between the Pierce County slayings and the Oct. 31 fatal shooting of a Seattle police officer who was ambushed as he sat in a parked patrol car with a rookie partner on a Seattle street.

    Christopher John Monfort, 41, is charged with aggravated first-degree murder and attempted murder in that shooting. Monfort is also charged with arson and attempted first-degree murder for an October firebombing at a Seattle maintenance yard that damaged several police vehicles.

    Oh Lord. I used to live near there when I was active duty at Fort Lewis. I always thought very highly of the cops in that area, especially Lakewood.
