A mother took to Facebook to ask for prayers for her son, who had just called her and admitted to killing an officer, and wounding another. Carolyn Washington wrote: “In shock My son killed a police officer and wounded another one Asking for PRAYER.” A dispatcher said “Henry Washington called, said he’d killed an officer, needs to go to the hospital, and then hung up. Said he was going to call his mother.” The incident happened in Bothell, Wash. Her son is Henry Eugene Washington, and he was booked earlier today on three counts: homicide, assault, and vehicular assault. His bail was denied. Washington’s Facebook profile picture shows him holding a gun, with support for Black Lives Matter.
