  • Seattle PD Officer Murder

    Taken from KOMO 4 News Website.

    SEATTLE -- A Seattle police officer was shot to death and another officer was wounded late Saturday night while conducting a traffic stop in the city's Central District neighborhood.

    The officer who died was a veteran of the department, and the woman who was wounded is a student officer in training, Assistant Chief Jim Pugel said.

    The two had stopped a car near the intersection of 29th Avenue and East Yesler Way just after 10 p.m. when another vehicle pulled up alongside and someone opened fire on the officers.

    The training officer was fatally wounded and died at the scene. His name has not been released.

    The other officer called for help and was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where she was expected to recover.

    A man who lived nearby said he heard eight to ten shots fired, then another volley of about six shots. It was not immediately clear if either officer returned fire.

    Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies converged on area, scouring the neighborhood for the shooter, but no arrests have been made.

    Pugel called the act a "deliberate homicide" and vowed to hunt down whoever is responsible.

    Investigators have been at the scene all night collecting evidence, and fellow officers lined Yesler Way as the fallen officer's body was driven to the King County Medical Examiner's office just before 3 a.m.

    Police are looking for a car that drove away from the shooting scene, but no detailed description of the vehicle or suspected shooter was available.

    The killing is the first line-of-duty death for the department since Officer Joselito Barber was fatally injured in a 2006 crash by a woman who was high on cocaine.

    Somebody killed a policeman today, and a part of American died.
    A piece of our country he swore to protect, will be buried with him at his side.
    The suspect that shot him will stand up in court, with counsel demanding his rights.
    While a young widowed mother must work for her kids, and spend many long lonely nights.
    The beat that he walked was a battled field too, just as if he'd gone off to war.
    Thought the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast, to his name they will add a gold star.
    Yes, somebody killed a policeman today, in your town or mine.
    While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors, a cop put his life on the line.
    Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street, and he stands at each new rookie's side.
    He answered the call, of himself gave his all, And A Part Of America Died.

      The officers were parked and talking when the suspect pulled up and opened fire on both of them while seated in their patrol car.

      This sounds like a assassination to me.

              I don't see how that is important at all.

              RIP brother.

But you can do that from behind a desk. In the end, you carry a gun and shield out into the field for the sole purpose of confronting the bad guys. The enemy. There is no other reason to be on the front lines." ~Nelson Demille

                    Its sad when someone has just lost their life and that is the only thing they can contribute. RIP to the Officer here.

                            Update is called an assassination

                            Story: Seattle police say the fatal drive-by shooting of veteran Officer Timothy Brenton on Saturday night represented something the department had not seen before: the apparent targeting of police at random.

                            "It was incredibly brazen and bold," said Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel, who called the shooting an "assassination."

                            Brenton, 39, a field training officer, and officer-trainee Britt Sweeney were seated in their parked squad car when Sweeney sensed danger over her left shoulder and yelled for her partner to duck.

                            A car pulled up alongside the officers' car in the 100 block of 29th Avenue shortly after 10 p.m., and someone inside opened fire.

                            Bullets grazed Sweeney's back as she hunkered down. Brenton was struck by several gunshots and died instantly.

                            Sweeney, 33, grabbed the police radio and called for help, jumped from the car and fired several rounds at the gunman's sedan as it backed away from the cruiser, turned around and sped down the Leschi street, police said Sunday.

                            Speaking at a news conference Sunday afternoon, Mayor Greg Nickels called the shooting "a coldblooded killing."

                              God Bless you guys in Seattle. God must have needed a fine Officer. Tim, say hello to Jason, and let him know that his squad is missing him. Y'all two will have fun, he's a funny and great guy. You've done your time down here, rest well and enjoy your time with our Lord. Just know, that the law enforcement community will not rest until the offender(s) are brought to justice..
