A year ago today, a Seattle police officer was killed and another wounded when a car pulled up to their police cruiser and the driver opened fire.
The slaying of 39-year-old Timothy Brenton was the first of six Puget Sound officers to be killed in the line of duty during the last three months of 2009.
Earlier this week, the Seattle Times published a story about a memorial for Brenton in the neighborhood where he was killed and what his family has been through in the past year. You can find that story here.
The memorial is scheduled to be dedicated at 3 p.m. today at the northwest corner of 29th Avenue and East Yesler Way, the Times reported.
