ST :

A Federal Way police officer died Sunday morning while guarding a scene where hours earlier police had shot and wounded a suspect driving a stolen car.

The cause of death is unknown, but it appears to have been from natural causes, a Federal Way police spokeswoman said. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

The identity of the 35-year-old officer was not released.

Sometimes death just happens to happen. It seems that this happened to be one of those times.
