Tuesday Memo: Truck-theft suspect killed in shootout… Bertha digs in … Police body cams

Shootout leaves one dead: A man reportedly trying to steal a truck in Maple Valley was shot dead by the truck’s owner early this morning. A woman was arrested in a car the couple are believed to have stolen earlier. More information on the story soon.

Water ban in Southwest King County might end Wednesday: The folks with the water district where E.coli-tainted water was discovered say they will treat and test the water a couple more times before giving the all-clear to residents, who are currently being told to boil their drinking water.

Creeping, creeping creeping … Bertha, the giant tunnel digger, is back in business, but it’s slow going after a month’s delay due to a labor dispute and some technical difficulties. Let’s hope the churning doesn’t get hung up again.

Body cameras for Spokane police: The Spokane City Council has OK’d buying the cameras with the hope that they will cut down on complaints against officers and reduce use of force. Let’s see if they work. Hmm … could Seattle police use these? The Spokesman-Review has the story.

Mariners lose in 12 innings: The boys just can’t catch a break, losing 6-5 to Kansas City. Is anyone still following the M’s?
