Police seek ex-con in Wash. police shootings


SEATTLE (AP) -- Police say a suspect in the coffee-shop slayings of four officers is holed up at a Seattle house, wounded and possibly dead.

Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says negotiators are still trying to communicate with Maurice Clemmons.

Authorities have been seeking Clemmons in the deaths of four Lakewood police officers gunned down in a Parkland coffee shop on Sunday morning. They believe the gunman may have been wounded by one of the victims.

Late Sunday, they began to focus on the Seattle house, about 30 miles from the crime scene. Negotiators used loudspeakers and explosions to try to prod Clemmons from hiding.
