Witness: Tacoma officer killed sacrificing self to save partner, shooter's wife
TACOMA, Wash. -- A woman who witnessed Wednesday's shooting of Tacoma police Officer Reginald "Jake" Gutierrez said he sacrificed himself to save his partner and the wife of the man who opened fire. Kristi Croskey said Gutierrez repeatedly yelled, "Get out! Get out!" to his partner and the woman as shots were fired from an upstairs landing at an East Tacoma home. Croskey was downstairs when she "heard the shells bouncing off the floor" above her head.

Croskey hid in a downstairs bathroom before fleeing.
