Minutes after the Key Arena Memorial Service for slain Officer Tim Brenton had ended, a 41-year-old man suspected in his murder was shot in the head by Seattle police in Tukwila. The suspect is currently in critical condition at Harborview.

Police received a tip that a car matching the Datsun suspected of being used in the drive-by was draped with a cover outside of an apartment complex. When officers tried to stop the car's owner he turned and fled up an exterior staircase. When the man pulled a gun the cops shot him multiple times. Two men connected with the suspect were also arrested.

The police tipster said the suspect had been acting strange recently. He'd also been laid off from his job as a security guard. Two details that, if true, would match up remarkably well to the profile released by Assistant Chief Jim Pugel yesterday.

He does not, however, have a felony record. We'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
