Maurice Clemmons the suspected lone cop killer is dead. He was shot and killed by a Seattle patrol officer who was investigating a stolen car early Tuesday morning.
The police officer came across the stolen car and approached it. He detected movement behind him and recognized the suspect as Clemmons. He ordered him to show his hands and stop. Clemmons wouldn’t – so the police officer shot him several times.
Clemmons had a serious gunshot wound from one of the four officers killed in the coffee-shop shooting. With these additional injuries he died. Police also found a handgun on Clemmons that belonged to one of the slain officers.
He didn’t work alone, he had at least six or seven accomplices to help him escape. Police have these people in custody as well. As earlier reported, Clemmons was charged in Washington state earlier this year with assaulting a police officer and raping a child. Investigators in the sex case said he was motivated by visions that he was Jesus Christ and that the world was on the verge of the apocalypse.
Today the world did end for him and now the streets are safer.
