    By Associated Press SEQUIM, Wash. (AP) - A U.S. Forest Service officer was found shot to death Saturday near Sequim, and the Washington State Patrol says a man being sought in that case died in a shootout with Clallam County sheriff's deputies.

    Trooper Krista D. Hedstrom says Officer Kristine Fairbanks called the patrol about 2:40 p.m. to check on a man and a van without license plates about 2:40 p.m.

    Hedstrom says troopers called back and failed to reach the Fairbanks, a 15-year veteran of the forest service. Soon afterward they found her shot to death and her police dog unharmed in her vehicle about five miles inside the Olympic National Forest south of Sequim.

    The van was later found empty at another location.

    About 9:30 p.m., Hedstrom says the man authorities were seeking, 36-year-old Shawn Matthew Roe, entered a gasoline station and convenience store. There Roe encountered two sheriff's deputies who were involved in the search, and Hedstrom says he died in an exchange of gunfire.

    Glad to hear the POS is dead.

    The dangers faced by our Forest Service and BLM rangers has been sadly over-looked.

    My condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the fallen. God has another angel.

    As for the shooter, Bye Bye dirtbag, God has a special place for you, too.
    It isn't heaven though. He doesn't take too kindly to those who kill his earthly LE angels.

    It takes raw courage to work out there all by yourself, no backup, for exactly this reason. She knew this could happen and did the job anyway. Damn proud to call her my sister in Law Enforcement. This is something civilians will never, ever understand about us and what we do. God bless her and her family and her chosen family she called friends.

    This makes 8 killed during the tenure of our governor.

    8 Killed by inmates under the supervision of our Department of Corrections.

    8 where our governor will make promises to "find out what happened."

    8 where our governor will do nothing to reform the DOC.

    She needs to be elected out and replaced this year, and it looks like a Republican may have a shot with Dino Rossi.

    I gotta go stick black tape on my jumpsuit again, after just removing it for the last one.

    Maclean I agree with you. That politiciian you refer to was "elected" by fraud. What less coould be expected?
