Four officers dead after ambush shooting

Posted by Hannah Lane  -  bio | email

LAKEWOOD, WA (WSFA) - An urgent manhunt is underway for a killer who murdered four police officers near Seattle Sunday.

The four were inside a coffee shop when a gunman came in and shot the three men and one woman.

The two employees and a number of customers inside were not hurt.

"This was clearly targeted at the police, absolutely.  They had marked police cars and marked uniforms. There were other people inside the facility and they weren't shot, wounded, hurt or even aimed at during the incident. Only the police officers were targeted," stated Ed Troyer of the Pierce County Sheriff's department.

It's unknown if the gunman said anything before shooting and the motive is unclear.

A $10,000.00 reward is being offered for information in the case.
