Maurice Clemmons, the suspect wanted in the slaying of four Lakewood police officers, was shot and killed in South Seattle early this morning by a Seattle police officer making a routine check of a stolen car.

The shooting occurred about the same time as Pierce County sheriff's detectives took into custody a man believed to have acted as a getaway driver in Sunday's slayings of the Lakewood officers. Police also booked four people into jail on suspicion of providing assistance to Clemmons, said sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer.

The News-Tribune newspaper in Tacoma is reporting that one of those arrested is the alleged getaway driver and is believed to be a former cellmate of Clemmons in Arkansas, according to law enforcement and KIRO TV.

Several other people also will be taken into custody for helping Clemmons, Troyer said.

Clemmons, who was armed with a handgun taken from one of the officers he is accused of killing, was shot in the 4400 block of South Kenyon Street during a confrontation with a South Precinct patrol officer, police officials said. He refused commands to stop and was shot by the officer about 2:45 a.m., the officials said.

Troyer said Clemmons had an older wound to his stomach believed to be the result of a gunshot fired by one of the Lakewood officers killed Sunday. Troyer said he was surprised Clemmons survived that wound.

Troyer praised the Seattle officer who shot Clemmons, saying the officer was lucky he wasn't killed. The officer has been placed on routine administrative leave.

Seattle police said the officer, a 4 ½-year veteran, was on routine patrol when he saw a car with the hood up and the engine running.

The officer ran the license plate and determined the car had been stolen, said Seattle Assistant Chief Jim Pugel.

The car had been reported stolen from the 4800 block of South Chicago Street about 12:45 a.m., a law enforcement source said.

As the officer sat in his patrol car doing paperwork on the stolen car, he noticed a man was approaching the driver's side of the patrol car from behind.

The officer immediately recognized the man as matching the description of Clemmons and got out his patrol car, Pugel said.
 

Actually with his record, he was living on borrowed time. Should've happened a long time ago to such a fine upstanding citizen. He had a hell of a way of thinking. He told friends that he was going to kill police officers and get revenge for being arrested. Let's see now...... he's been in a life of crime, was recently arrested for assault and a rape of a child, but because they arrested him, he feels he deserves to get revenge. Yep, in his garbage mind, the cops were in the wrong. Most career criminal types actually think that way. The cops are wrong for arresting him, because he raped and robbed. Yeah!!! May he rest in hell.

in hell alright... but don't think he will be at "rest". and that's what he gets.
 
Personally, I think we ought to burn the body and hang it from a bridge somewhere, like the Islamic savages did to those Blackwater Security guys. Send a message: hey, you dumbass "Islam is the religion of peace" types - here's Sharia law for ya'; nice, ain't it?

Might as well get some political mileage out of it. Sure as hell, the antis are going to.
 
Such a waste. I think instead of putting them all in prison, they should take people like Clemmons and McVeigh and the unabomber and give them a ton of supplies and send them to Iraq or Afghanistan. Think of the benefit!

I bet the "pucker factor" for this one was a million and one~!

The minute the officer saw him in the mirror, he had to react in a split second. Otherwise we might be talking about another murdered police officer. Thank God he put the bastard down, 6 ft under. The daisy population will continue to thrive, due to this piece of manure.
 
The best possible outcome for this terrible situation. I would hate to think of him spending 20 or so years on "death" row, being fed 3 square meals a day at public expense, while the families of the slain officers spend those years in limbo.

A respectful salute to the men and women of our police forces, who put their lives on the line every day. And particularly to those who have given the last full measure of devotion.
 
If only...

While we can never know for sure, perhaps if someone with a CCW had been in the coffee shop when the shooting started, maybe the number of dead cops might have been reduced, or at least the killer stopped on site.

That is a nicee thought but there were already 4 trained and armed people in the coffee shop. One was able to hit the shooter in the gut with a bullet but did not stop him. One more armed citizen may have made a difference but to say that if only there had been someone with a CCW at the scene is possibly stretching it. How about if there had been 5 cops there instead of 4 or only 3.

I guess I was just thinkiing that Clemmons was going for uniforms and ignored the civilians. If either an undercover cop or a decently trained CCW civilian had been present, they would have had an advantage of surprise. We'll never know for sure, and I'll gladly admit that this is just a little Monday-morning quarterbacking.
