 Suspected cop killer Maurice Clemmons was shot and killed by police in Seattle early today.

His death came nearly two days after four officers were killed in a West Side coffee shop in what authorities described as an ambush.

One of the slain officers, Tina Griswold, is the sister of Tiffiny Ryan, who works in the records decision at the Spokane Police Department. Ryan is a former Post Falls dispatcher engaged to Spokane County sheriff’s Deputy Beau Vucinich.

She remembered her sister as a dedicated officer during a tearful plea Monday for Clemmon’s capture. Read my story here.
