It was a horrific scene. Four police officers were massacred while sitting in a coffee shop in Lakewood, Washington. They were preparing for their shift when Maurice Clemmons walked into the coffee shop. He went to the counter as if to order coffee but then turned and opened fire on the police officers.
The officers were in full uniform and wearing bulletproof vests but it appeared that Clemmons planned the shooting and executed the police officers. However, the motive is unknown as to why Clemmons shot the police officers.
Currently, the police may have a location for Clemmons. He may be injured and seeking medical assistance. Clemmons’ criminal history includes at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington. However, he has been released numerous times from custody despite the danger he poses to the community.
Recently, Clemmons had been in jail in Pierce County for the past several months on a pending charge of second-degree rape of a child. Six days ago, he was released from custody even though he was wanted on a fugitive warrant out of Arkansas and has felony charges in Washington State.
If you have information on Clemmons please contact your local police department. This low-scum criminal has to be caught and put in jail.
