BRIER, WASH. - A 28-year-old police officer died in a struggle while answering an aid call in this suburb north of Seattle, and a 55-year-old man and the former mayor was arrested.
The officer, who had been on the force less than a year, responded to an aid call for a medical emergency at a house Tuesday afternoon, then used his radio to request assistance, Everett police Officer Boyd Bryant said.
"Moutlake Terrace officers arrived, they found the officer unconscious, not breathing," said Bryant. "They initiated CPR immediately."
The officer was taken to Stevens Memorial Hospital in Edmonds where he was pronounced dead. The reason for the death was not readily apparent and remained under investigation, Bryant said.
Brier Police Chief Donald Lane identified the officer as Eddie Thomas. He joined the department in January and previously worked for Sauk Suiattle tribal police department in Darrington, Wash., Lane said.
Thomas graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School in 1996.
