Police: Suspect in police deaths hurt, maybe dead

Authorities say the suspect in the slaying of four police officers in a suburban Seattle coffeeshop is wounded and perhaps dead.

A spokesman for the Pierce County Sheriff says negotiators have been trying to communicate with Maurice Clemmons. They've been using loudspeakers, explosions and even a robot to try to prod Clemmons from a Seattle house.

Four Lakewood police officers were gunned down in a Parkland coffeeshop yesterday morning. Authorities believe one of the victims wounded the gunman.

Clemons has a long criminal history. But a police spokesman declined to say what evidence might link him to the shooting.
