SPD Honor Guard to attend Seattle officer’s funeral

Spokane police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick and four members of the Police Department Honor Guard will attend the funeral of slain Seattle police Officer Timothy Brenton this week.

Brenton was shot to death Saturday following a routine traffic stop. He was in the passenger seat of a squad car training a new officer when a car pulled up alongside and shots fired. The car turned around and drove away, presumably to avoid the squad car's dash camera, according to the Seattle Times.

A $105,000 reward is being offered for tips that lead to an arrest. Brenton has an 11-year-old daughter and an 8-year-old son.

Kirkpatrick, Sgt. Jon Anderson, Cpl. David Beckley, Officer Wayne Downing and Officer Shaney Redmon will attend Brenton's memorial service Friday at the Key Arena. They leave Thursday.
