Many Rentonites have been following the news about the search for the Lakewood Police Officer Murderer coming close to home tonight.
I unintentionally passed within a block of the manhunt tonight. I was on my way home from Boeing field on Renton Avenue, and police had some of the streets closed in the Skyway area.
Here is the story for those who have not seen it yet. It’s unclear from the information released so far whether Clemmons was ever at this house on Renton Ave; he was not at this house when the SWAT team arrived. But make an extra effort to keep your doors locked.
I was out most of the evening, so I just now found this email from Denis Law on the topic.

Please let the council know that Pierce County, assisted by a number of police agencies including Renton, surrounded a house on Renton Ave. S., west of Rainier, in search of the suspect. He was not found but there was a media circus in the area. This is one of many targets they’re searching throughout the county.
No news to report.
