Lit candles, numerous tributes for slain Seattle officer
By Charles E. Brown and Susan Gilmore
SEATTLE — More than 200 people held lighted candles wrapped in aluminum foil and stood in silence Monday night during a makeshift vigil at the site where Seattle police Officer Timothy Brenton was slain.
"It's so terribly tragic," said a middle-aged man who placed a half-dozen yellow tulips at a growing memorial to the officer who was killed in a drive-by shooting Saturday night. Another neighbor, who gave his name only as Bill, said he heard the gunshots in a neighborhood not unfamiliar with the sound of gunfire.
"It's difficult," he said. "We all want to do something to show support for our community, the police officer and his family."
