Mount Rainier Shooting Coffee Cups
In this photo provided by Jen Berthiaume, a message scrawled onto a coffee cup that was dropped to a group of campers Jan. 2, 2012 while a search was going on for an armed suspect in Mount Rainier National Park, Wash., is seen. A helicopter crew searching for the gunman who killed a Mount Rainier National Park ranger on New Year's Day came across a small group of campers and used an unusual method to warn them the shooter was at large, writing messages on paper coffee cups and dropping them to the campers telling them of the danger. The first cup said, "A ranger has been shot shooter at large. Call on cell if able." (AP Photo/Jen Berthiaume)
