    Oh my! This sounds scary. I wonder how many? And what is happening in Parkland that criminals think they should be ambushing Law Enforcement?

    Wow!

    My god!! I hope they solve this crime quickly, with no further loss of life! Were these civilian officers or were they affiliated with the base?

    More information about the ambush

    The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department has reported that four police officers have been shot dead in an ambush at the Forza Coffee coffee shop at 11401 on South Steele Street in Lakewood Sunday morning.

    Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said investigators are immediately offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the suspect, and that number is expected to grow.

    He could not say what agency the officers were from.

    The officers were sitting in the coffee shop with their computers out when the shooter came in. The officers were targeted, and it was not a robbery, investigators believe.

    "It was just a flat out ambush," Troyer said.

    It appears these officers had met at the coffee shop and were preparing to begin their shift.

    How awful is this?

    Per FOX news, there are two suspects being sought.

    There were other customers in the coffee shop at the time and the officers were targeted.

    Parkland is a suburb of Tacoma and has about 25,000 people. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of pain caused by this crime. Four officers murdered in a town that size is immense. So much sadness. That town's gonna need a lot of prayer.

    4 police officers killed in Wash. state

    Shootings happened at coffee shop south of Tacoma


    "This was a targeted, selected ambush," Troyer said, adding that customers and baristas were in the shop at the time but no one else was injured.

    FOX national just said there's a news conference going on right now and being covered by their local affiliate. More to come.

    FWIW, FOX news just said there's one black male and one white male being sought.

    more to come,

    I still can't find what agency the officers were from. The news is still really sketchy.

    fran



    Police officers shot and killed in 'ambush'


    ............snip.............

    were searching for a male suspect and interviewing witnesses. Forza Coffee is near McChord Air Force Base in Tacoma.

    "We hopefully will have answers, but there is nothing more we can tell you," Troyer said. "That's as cold-hearted as it is."


    The suspects remain on the loose.

    A $10,000 reward is being offered for information. Tips can be called in to 253-591-5959.

    Short video mid way down the page. Article with it reads:

    Officials at the scene said two gunmen burst into the Forza Coffee Co. outlet at 11401 Steele St. South, shot the four uniformed officers as they were working on their laptop computers, then fled the scene.

    I am not definite on this, but used to live there and I would think the officers in that area, Parkland, Spanaway, would have been Pierce Co. LE...again, not sure, but I remember Pierce Co would cover that area.

    When I was reading at the above link, a poster mentioned another recent incident in Washington. There was an officer shot and killed while he sat in his patrol car in October. I don't believe they could be linked as the alleged perp was arrested. I haven't looked into that case any further.

    Just, FWIW,
