The FBI joined the hunt for a “person of interest” in the slaying of four police officers in Parkland, Wash., at a coffee shop Sunday morning, according to media reports.

Authorities identified the person of interest as Maurice Clemmons, 37, of Tacoma, Wash.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Times reported that ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had commuted Clemmons’ sentence nine years ago despite protests from prosecutors.

The Times reported that Clemmons  had a lengthy criminal history that  included at least five felony convictions in Arkansas and at least eight felony charges in Washington.

The Seattle paper said  Huckabee issued a statement Sunday night calling the slayings  “a horrible and tragic event” and that if Clemmons is in fact responsible  “it will be the result of a series of failures in the criminal justice system in both Arkansas and Washington State.”
