Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and loved ones of the police officers killed this morning in Lakewood as well as all those who work at the Lakewood Police Department.

This is a senseless tragedy. The targeting of police officers is a particularly heinous crime and I urge all member of the community to cooperate with law enforcement officials as they hunt down the individuals involved. I will work with the Lakewood and Pierce County officials to help provide any assistance they may need to deal with and recover from this terrible tragedy.
