Police in the US state of Washington say they have shot dead the man suspected of killing four police officers at the weekend.

Maurice Clemmons, 37, was killed in Seattle early on Tuesday, a spokesman for the Pierce County Sheriff was quoted as saying by AP news agency.

He had been on the run since the officers were killed as they sat in a cafe near the city.

Police had been conducting door-to-door searches using sniffer dogs.

A reward of $125,000 (£76,000) had been posted for information leading to Mr Clemmons' arrest.

Police have said they do not know why he shot the officers in Lakewood, south of Seattle on Sunday.

The case sparked anger across the US after it emerged that Mr Clemmons had been released from prison despite a history of violent crime.

His 95-year sentence in Arkansas was commuted in 2000 by then governor Mike Huckabee.

Mr Clemmons quickly reverted to crime. He was back in prison in 2004 but released again later that year.
