ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Two Seattle police detectives have arrived in Anchorage to help authorities investigate a shooting that left an officer with serious injuries.

Washington State Policing

Lt. Dave Parker says the detectives played pivotal roles in investigating an Oct. 31 ambush on a parked patrol car in Seattle that killed Officer Timothy Brenton and injured another officer. Christopher Monfort has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and attempted murder in that case.

The detectives, whose names have not been released, are assisting in the case of Anchorage police Officer Jason Allen, who was shot early Saturday as he sat in his patrol car in a residential neighborhood.

Police say a dark-colored car pulled up next to Allen and a passenger fired, striking the 47-year-old officer as many as five times in his arms and torso.
