Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer tells Seattle’s KOMO-TV that the officers were hit near 116th Street and Steele Street on the east side of the Air Force base at about 8:30 a.m. local time.
The officers were shot at Forza Coffee, the News Tribune of Tacoma reported.
Troyer told The News Tribune in Tacoma that the officers were sitting in the coffee shop with their computers when the shooter came in Sunday morning.
He says investigators believe the officers were targeted, and it was not a robbery.

He could not immediately say what agency the officers were from.
A report is coming in from FoxNews of shootings of multiple police officers near McChord Air Force base in Parkland, Washington.
