but to all of us.
Pierce County Sheriff Paul Pastor told reporters at the scene that it is "an example of the danger that police officers, sheriff's deputies and state troopers face every day."
"The person or people who did this not only harmed us, they harmed the good that we can do in the community and the good that we work to do every day," Pastor said.
"This is an example of the cost that is sometimes paid by
people who believe in duty, obligation and service and do that on
behalf of the community," he said. "We lost people we care about. We're working to find out who did this and deal with him."
