BOTHELL, Wash. (AP) — Authorities in Bothell say they’ve arrested a man suspected of killing one officer and wounding another in a traffic stop.
The Bothell Fire Department tweeted shortly before midnight that two Bothell officers were down following a pursuit.
Bothell police Captain Mike Johnson later announced that one of the officers was killed.

It’s unclear what sparked the pursuit and subsequent shooting. Police said they found the gunman hiding on a rooftop near the scene.
