Cop Killer Clemmons: President Obama and LeBron James are my brothers and Oprah Winfrey is my sister

Prosecutors were expected Wednesday to charge Darcus D. Allen, the man accused of being the getaway driver for Maurice Clemmons as he fled the scene of the shootings at coffee shop in Parkland early Sunday. Allen served time in an Arkansas prison with Clemmons.

Two women accused of giving Clemmons first aid and rides also may be charged Wednesday in Tacoma.

Three other people appeared Tuesday in Pierce County Superior Court. Two brothers, Eddie Lee Davis and Douglas Edward Davis, are charged with rendering criminal assistance. A third man, Clemmons’ half-brother Rickey Hinton, was ordered held pending charges.

Clemmons, 37, was shot to death early Tuesday by a Seattle police officer…

…Court documents say police first suspected Clemmons after finding an abandoned pickup truck registered to a business address of his. A truck matching that description was seen fleeing the ambush scene by the baristas who witnessed the start of the attack.

“The only motive that we have is he decided he was going to go kill police officers,” Troyer said. Investigators also reported that Clemmons told others the night before the shooting that he was going to kill police and they should watch the news, but they wrote it off as “crazy-talk.”

At the time of his arrest in Washington state earlier this year, investigators said Clemmons had visions that he was Jesus Christ and that the world was on the verge of the apocalypse.

He also told the officer that President Obama and LeBron James are his brothers and Oprah Winfrey is his sister, and referred to himself as “the beast,” according to court papers obtained by The News Tribune of Tacoma.
