"UNCALLED FOR"

Lakewood Police shooting kills
four Washington police officers
November 29th, 2009 


The Lakewood Police Department has become the victim of a deadly shooting. Four Lakewood Police officers were killed in a shooting early Sunday morning, and the search is on for suspect or suspects related to the murders. Four officers doing work for the Lakewood Police Department were enjoying coffee at the Cafe Forza coffee house in Spanaway when a gunman entered the coffee shop and opened fire on the officers. The murders are being called "execution style", and it is being reported that the Lakewood police officers were targeted in the event.

The four Lakewood police officers (three males and one female) were at the Parkland Forza Coffee Shop at 8:15 A.M. when a man described as a black male in his mid 20's to mid 30's entered the coffee shop and opened fire on the four police officers.

This is heartbreaking, they all look so young. And to be killed after they dedicated their lives to serving their community...I hope they catch the guy.

Tragic.
Senseless and uncalled for.
Somrtimes all you can do is pray for the victims.

How tragic and senseless. A similar event occurred last summer when a 911 caller lured sheriff's officers to their execution in my town. The community outpouring was unbelievable and encouraging, but it's sad it took such a horrible act to bring people together. This is a powerful and telling example of this week's challenge. And I agree that the act was definitely uncalled for.
