Police in Washington state shot and killed a man barricading himself in a house who held two children hostage.
But an officer who initially responded to a domestic disturbance call at the residence was shot; he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
The suspect remained barricaded in a house for almost 12-hours after the shooting.
Despite the efforts of police negotiators to coax him out of the house peacefully, a SWAT team entered the home and killed the suspect.
Pierce County Sheriff's Office spokesman told reporters the suspect used the children as shields.
