San Francisco Chronicle

OAKLAND, Calif. — The ambush shooting deaths of four Washington state police officers at a coffee shop has hit the Oakland Police Department particularly hard, just eight months after the force lost four of its own, authorities said today.

On Sunday, a gunman killed Lakewood, Wash., police Sgt. Mark Renninger, 39; and Officers Ronald Owens, 37; Tina Griswold, 40; and Greg Richards, 42, at a Forza Coffee shop in Parkland. A suspect with a lengthy criminal history was still being sought today.
