VIDEO: Police Shoot and Kill 67-year-old Pedo Who Tried To Meet Two Young Girls Aged 7 and 11

In a recent sting operation at the DoubleTree hotel in Tukwila, Washington, the Seattle Police Department fatally shot a 67-year-old (alleged) pedophile who arrived to meet two young girls, aged 7 and 11.

The operation, conducted by the Washington State Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce, aimed to catch the suspect in the act.

Upon the suspect’s arrival and his subsequent attempt to pull a gun, the officers responded with lethal force.

This incident has sparked a range of reactions on social media, with many users expressing support for the police’s actions in neutralizing the offender.

I just have one question….why did the man bring a gun with him?

And how did he draw it so quickly?

I’m not saying it’s not real, but it almost feels a little staged.  Very strange!

Fox News had more details:

Wild bodycam footage has been released showing the moment police in Seattle gunned down an alleged sex predator who pulled a gun on them during a sting operation during which the suspect reportedly thought he was meeting up with two underage girls.

The suspect, 67, arrived at a DoubleTree Suites hotel in Tukwila at around 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday under the impression that he was meeting two young girls, ages 7 and 11, the Seattle Police Department (SPD) says.

He knocked on a hotel room door, where he was met by multiple SPD officers with the Washington State Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce who were undercover and waiting to arrest him.

As police opened the door, the suspect pulled out a gun as one of the officers tried to wrest the firearm away from the suspect, video shows.

A gunshot rang out as two other officers could be seen unloading several rounds onto the suspect, killing him at the scene.

“Shots fired, shots fired, suspect down,” one officer could be heard saying.

One of the officers was grazed by a bullet during the deadly incident, but is expected to recover.

“For our officers, these situations are dangerous, unpredictable, and can escalate rapidly,” SPD Chief Adrian Diaz, adding that internet crimes against children are up 67% from 2022 to 2023.

It is unclear what the suspect had been accused of doing or what led police to set up the undercover operation.

Eric Wehrmeister, a man who was staying at the hotel, said he saw the quick-moving situation unfold.

“I was running, I could see someone firing a gun,” Wehrmeister told KOMO. “There was a rapid succession of gunfire. Good thing they were shooting away from my room. You know it could’ve been a lot worse.”

Nicole Parker, a former FBI special agent, tells Fox News Digital that the officers had to react to the fast-moving situation in a split-second.

“Praise to these cops at the Seattle Police Department for their quick reflexes and neutralizing the threat immediately so no one else was harmed,” Parker says. “Sadly, in light of countless recent line-of-duty law enforcement officer deaths, we know it doesn’t always work out this way.”

Parker says that child pedophile offenders are often the most dangerous criminals and can put police in life-threatening situations.

“They know when they are caught – they’re going away for a long time and they have nothing to lose,” Parker says, noting that two of her former FBI special agent colleagues were shot dead while executing a search warrant for a child predator three years ago.

Are you glad the police shot to kill?
