Spokesman: Suspect in officers' death still alive

SEATTLE - November 30, 2009 Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said Monday night that police have questioned several people who have provided assistance to Maurice Clemmons since the Sunday morning shootings. Troyer says investigators now think Clemmons is on his own.

Officers have said they believe Clemmons was shot in the abdomen during the attack on the officers at a coffee shop in the Tacoma suburb of Lakewood.

Troyer also says police are certain Clemmons was in a Seattle house late Sunday night, but was able to flee before police could contain the area. Police staked out the house overnight before SWAT team members determined early Monday that Clemmons wasn't there.
