Four police officers shot and killed at coffee shop

Four police officers were shot and killed yesterday at a coffee shop in Tacoma, Washington. A gunman opened fire as they sat at a table before their shift.

The attack, which happened at 8.15am, was clearly targeted at the officers, not a robbery gone bad, as there were marked patrol cars outside and they were all in uniform.”

The killed police officers

The suspect, Maurice Clemmons (pictured above) has a history of violence. Right now they have him wounded (one of the officers managed to shoot him before being killed) and surrounded in a home.
Will bring you update.

Too sad!

This happened in a city not far from ours. The update is that the guy had already leaft the house before it was surrounded. So he's on the loose and a fugitive. This is so sad, and last month, a police officer was also shot dead in the city I live in.

I was wondering if it won't be better to eradicate the use of weapons in all its ramification [wishful thinking, I know]. Was it not 16 army officers that were shot by another army in the State last Month?
