A Tacoma police officer was fatally shot Wednesday while responding to a domestic violence call on the city’s East Side, sparking an hours-long standoff with a volley of gunfire.

Tacoma Police Chief Don Ramsdell said Thursday the officer was 45 years old and joined the department in 1999. The department said it will not identify the officer until all of his family members had been notified.

A standoff with the suspected shooter lasted nearly 12 hours before he was fatally shot by police.
