Suspected cop killer slain by police



The officer said the man ignored orders to stop and show his hands, then ran from the officer.

"He wouldn't stop," Pugel said. "The officer fired several rounds, took the person into custody."

Seattle Fire Department personnel responded and the suspect, identified as Clemmons, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pugel also said Clemmons was found to be in possession of a gun belonging to one of the slain officers. Clemmons did not return fire before he was killed, Pugel said.
