Washington- The Lakewood police department has released details regarding the shootout that happened on the Nov. 29. The shootout happened at 8:15 in the morning at the Steele Street Forza Coffee House. Four officers, three men and one woman, were shot down at the place as they sat discussing their plans for the day. The Lakewood police shooting updates that have been released by the department say that a man has been arrested in the suspicion of being linked in the murders.
The Lakewood police shootout updates state that the man, Maurice Clemmons, is 37 years old, and is under the supervision of the state Department of Corrections. The man is a hardcore criminal, with an elaborate list of convictions that include felony, robbery, second degree rape of a child and third degree assault on a policeman. The governor of the state of Arkansas said that the man had been granted clemency earlier, but had been arrested again on charges of violation of parole. The possible involvement of the man in the murder case only goes on to show the negligence of the police departments of both the Washington and the Arkansas.
The involvement of Maurice Clemmons in the murder is not yet confirmed. The police has offered a bounty of $100,000 in the case. The neighbors of the man report that he is a rather calm but paranoid fellow. While he is not known to socialize much, he has installed almost 12 cameras all over his house, even in the gardens. The Lakewood police shootout updates state that the murder was done in cold blood and much deliberation, a suspicion that is confirmed by the fact that no one else was hurt in the coffee house.
