Deputy shoots man
A Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputy shot and killed a man on the night of Nov. 9 after responding to a call in south Everett that the 44-year-old man had already stabbed himself and seemed suicidal.
The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART) recovered a knife from the scene and are investigating the sequence of events that led to the shooting.
Deputies were dispatched at about 7:45 p.m. after a family member of the 44-year-old man called 911. The caller had requested assistance stating that the man had already harmed himself with a knife.
Two Snohomish County deputies have been placed on administrative leave as part of protocol for the investigation. The deputy who fired a less lethal pepper-ball gun has been with the Sheriff’s office for seven years. The lethal shot was fired by a deputy with four years’ law enforcement experience.
Additional details will be released by SMART as the investigation continues.
