Police in Washington have locked down a Seattle neighborhood in hopes of coaxing out the man believed to be behind Sunday’s execution of four police officers.
Police have used teargas and could be heard firing shots and encouraging Maurice Clemmons, 37, to surrender. An ABC producer on the scene said a Seattle home is surrounded by a SWAT team and a robot will be sent inside soon.
The suspect has a gunshot wound to the abdomen that could be fatal if untreated, police sources told ABC News’ Neal Karlinsky. That information came from associates of the suspect who helped him overnight and were later picked up by police.
