A 34-year-old Federal Way police officer who died Sunday while maintaining a perimeter around a shooting scene suffered a heart attack, the King County Medical Examiner ruled today.


Brian M. Walsh served as a police officer for eight years, the last four in Federal Way.

Walsh was found unresponsive in his patrol car about 6:45 a.m. He had responded to the 33300 block of 26th Avenue Southwest to assist other officers investigating an officer-involved shooting in the area.

Walsh was married with two children and another on the way, the Federal Way Police Department reported in a news release.

A memorial fund has been established by the Federal Way Police Officer’s Guild. Donations can be made to Officer Walsh’s Memorial Fund at any Key Bank branch.

Federal Way police are expected to release details about a memorial for Walsh on Tuesday.
