The three male officers and one female officer were in a coffee shop discussing cases and checking their laptops when a gunman entered and shot all four, CNN reported.
“This was a targeted, selected ambush,” Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer said.
Two employees and other customers were unharmed, Troyer said. “Just the law enforcement officers were targeted.”
A $10,000 reward has been offered for information resulting in an arrest, they announced.
The shooting happened in Lakewood, Washington, 40 miles south of Seattle and about 10 miles from Tacoma, CNN reported.
The identities of the officers, all from the Lakewood police department, have not been released, CNN said.
