SPD officer who shot Twilight Exit gunman is four-year veteran

The Seattle police officer who fatally shot a man who wounded two people Sunday night at the Twilight Exit bar is Anthony Ducre, the department announced during a news conference.

Ducre has been administratively reassigned, in accordance with department policy following an officer-involved shooting. Ducre has been with the department for four years and won the SPD’s medal of courage in 2012. Ducre talks about the incident that earned him the medal in this video posted on YouTube.

Police identified the dead man today as James D. Anderson, 32, of Seattle.

Just before the shooting, Anderson had been ejected from the Twilight Exit after an argument with his girlfriend only to return about 20 minutes later with a gun, witnesses and the bar’s owner said. He allegedly shot a doorman in the leg, then made his way across the bar and shot his girlfriend several times.

Officers responded and were at the door as the gunman was leaving. The officers identified themselves, but Anderson fired a single shot and Ducre returned fire.

Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene.
