Arkansas ties to police ambush in Washington

PARKLAND, WA - Washington Police are looking for 37-year-old Maurice Clemmons who is a person of interest in the fatal shooting of four Lakewood police officers at a Parkland coffee shop.

At this point investigators would like to just talk to Clemmons and can't be called a suspect at this point.

Currently Clemmons is under the supervision of the Parkland state Department of Corrections, previously he had a record of robbery and theft in Arkansas.

Also, Clemmons was recently arrested and charged in Pierce County with child rape and assault on a police officer.
