We’ve gotten a number of calls, texts, and emails here at Seattlecrime HQ asking about the multitude of fire trucks and police cars lining I5 and a few streets around the city. Those emergency vehicles are part of a procession for Deputy Kent Mundell, who was fatally shot last week.
From Pierce Co:
The motorcade with Deputy Kent Mundell is scheduled to leave the King County Medical Examiner’s Office at 2 p.m. today. The procession will head southbound I-5 to the 74th St. exit, on to South Tacoma Way, right on Steilacoom Boulevard to the Mountain View Funeral Home. This will be a small motorcade. Citizens are encouraged to line the route if they would like to pay their respects.
