The suspect in the fatal shooting of a Tacoma officer was shot and killed by police after a lengthy barricade situation, authorities said early Thursday.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer said the suspect was shot at approximately 3:30 a.m. Thursday, ending an 11-hour standoff. The suspect was not identified.

Troyer said the suspect refused to surrender during negotiations with officials, and that the man was using two children as human shields.

Troyer said a girl and a boy, found unharmed, were taken from the house. He said multiple weapons were found in the house.
