PARKLAND, Wash. - A police spokesman says blood was found inside a pickup truck belonging to the man wanted in the slayings of four Lakewood police officers.
     
Lt. Dave McDonald says the white Chevrolet pickup was found at a nearby grocery store shortly after the four officers were gunned down Sunday morning at a Parkland coffee shop. It was not immediately known whether tests had verified the blood was that of Maurice Clemmons, the 37-year-old man sought in the officers' deaths.
     
McDonald says witnesses saw the truck parked down the street from the coffee shop around the time of the shootings. He says officers are not sure whether Clemmons drove the truck himself to the grocery store.

Wash. shooting re-opens Huckabee's clemency record

A political analyst says former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's decision to grant clemency to the suspect in the killing of four Washington state police officers could cost him if he seeks another presidential run.
     
University of Arkansas at Little Rock political scientist Art English said Monday that Huckabee's decision to make Maurice Clemmons eligible for parole in 2000 could "definitely be a vulnerability" should he face off in a primary with a law-and-order Republican.
     
He says it's hard not to compare the case to that of Willie Horton, a convicted killer who raped a woman while on release as part of a furlough program supported by then Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis.
     
Allies of former President George H.W. Bush ran ads criticizing Dukakis' support for the program, undermining the Democrat's presidential campaign.
