The Lakewood police shooting manhunt is still ongoing, as the Lakewood Police Department looks for the shooting suspect with the help of additional resources. The tragic murder of four Lakewood police officers took place around 8:15 A.M. on Sunday morning, in Parkwood, Washington. A number of news sources have been falsely reporting where the shooting took place, but it in fact took place at the Forza Coffee Company store located in Parkwood, Washington. A manhunt is ongoing for the killer in this case, and the Lakewood Police Department is receiving additional aid in the search. This includes surrounding police departments, county sheriffs, and also the FBI.
As more evidence from the case has come in to play, it is becoming clearer that one of the officers that were killed was able to fire off a few rounds before he died. The hope now is that one of those rounds came into contact with the suspect, and that he will be forced to seek medical attention as a result. Now the search is being coordinated to find if someone has gone to a local hospital for medical aid. The alert is out for the suspect, who is described as being an African American male in his 20’s or 30’s with a scruffy appearance. He is said to be standing about five foot seven inches up to five foot ten inches in height.
At around 8:15 A.M. on Sunday, November 29th, a man walked into the Parkwood Forza Coffee Company store and opened fire on four Lakewood police officers. The four officers were clearly wearing uniforms to denote that they were on the job, and their police vehicles parked outside also showed that there were indeed police in the building. This makes it pretty apparent that the suspect knew exactly who he was going after, and that when he opened fire on the four police officers he was actually targeting them. The officers were all seated at a table doing police work on their laptops when the shooting took place.
The suspect in this case is said to have ran away on foot, and the search began almost immediately to try and find out why this tragic incident took place. Police are on the search for this shooter, and if there are any witnesses that have not reported in to the Lakewood Police Department, it is very important to share that information to aid with the search. A tip line has been set up at 1-866-977-2362 and if you have any information that could possibly helps authorities make sure to call in right away. Lakewood and Parkland Washington are located just south of Tacoma, Washington, which itself is just south of Seattle, Washington on the west side of the state.
