Tributes to slain Lakewood police officers

I’ve caught wind of a couple of tributes to Mark Renninger, Ronald Owen, Tina Griswold and Greg Richards, the four Lakewood police officers who were gunned down Sunday morning.

First, Fitz from KKWF-FM (The Wolf, 100.7) is asking listeners go gather for a candlelight vigil at Lakewood town center from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday (Dec. 4), and form in the shape of a heart in honor of the Lakewood Four. Participants will gather in the Lakewood Towne Center parking lot behind Target, 5731 Main St., SE, in Lakewood.

And I’m also hearing that a benefit for the officers’ families is coming together at the Swiss Tavern in Tacoma. Organizer Joe Rosati confirms China Davis and Voxxy Vallejo with others to be named for the event, which is scheduled for Dec. 13. He said proceeds will be donated to a fund that has been set up to benefit the families of the shooting victims.

And those aren’t to mention the memorial planned for Tuesday at the Tacoma Dome.
