In the early morning hours on Sunday, June 13, 2021 Officer Alexandra “Lexi” Harris took police action when she assisted motorists involved in a multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 5 in Seattle. While out of her car rendering assistance, Lexi was tragically struck by another passing motorist and killed.
Seattle Police Guild President Mike Solan said, “Seattle lost an incredible police officer on Sunday morning. Moreover, humanity lost a piece of its foundation as her spirit was called for another service. She exemplified how a public safety peace officer should conduct themselves. This is a terrible loss to our family and we will never forget her sacrifice, courage, strength and spirit. She was known as our Wonder Woman. It was an honor and privilege to have know her.”
Originally from Seattle, Lexi served her community out of SPD’s West Precinct, Wellness Unit and in the Community Response Group. Her passion revolved around martial arts, spending time with friends, family, and improving community relations whether on or off-duty. Lexi leaves behind a fiancé, his two daughters and her parents.

SEATTLE – A 67-year-old man whose beloved dog was killed in a random attack in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood is speaking out about the experience exclusively to Q13 News.
Police say a man confronted John Hickey as he walked his dog Alice near Courthouse Park on Saturday. The suspect allegedly demanded Hickey’s jacket but backed off when he was threatened with pepper spray by Hickey.
Hickey said as soon as Alice hit the concrete, it was clear she didn’t have much time left. She died in his arms minutes later. READ MORE: https://www.q13fox.com/news/unacceptable-victim-whose-dog-was-kicked-and-killed-in-seattle-speaks-out-after-suspect-released-from-jail
As crime levels in Seattle continue to climb, more police officers are fleeing the force for jobs in police departments outside the city, where politics may play less of a role in shaping law enforcement decisions.
More than 200 officers have left the Seattle Police Department in the past year, leaving staffing levels below what department leaders say are necessary, and the head of the police union fears that number could double by next year.
