Six arrested for helping suspected cop killer

Police now have six people in custody for helping suspected cop-killer Maurice Clemmons elude police during a two-day manhunt. The six have been identified as Douglas Davis, Eddie Davis, Rickey Hinton — Clemmons' half brother — Letricia Nelson, Quiana Williams and Darcus Allen, the Pierce County prosecutor's office said. Allen is being held as a fugitive from Arkansas, where he is wanted on robbery and theft charges and parole violations.

Even with a gunshot wound to the torso, Clemmons, 37, managed to elude police until early Tuesday, when a Seattle police officer spotted him and told him to show his hands. Clemmons ran and appeared to reach into his pocket, and the officer shot and killed him, Assistant Police Chief Jim Pugel said. Authorities say relatives and friends aided Clemmons during those days that he evaded authorities.

Relatives and friends drove Clemmons from the scene of the coffeehouse shooting, bandaged his wound, drove him 40 miles to Seattle and hid him, affidavits filed by Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist say.
