King County deputy shoots man who took away Taseron December 10, 2012 @ 8:22 am (Updated: 11:35 am - 12/10/12 )
The deputy was not injured, but the man was shot at least once. He died at Harborview Medical Center.
Sgt. Cindi West says it happened at a trailer park in the 4300 block of Preston Fall City Road just before 7:00 a.m.
The man was yelling for a few hours about the end of the world before neighbors called 911. Callers said he was in the park yelling that he was going to "blow something up and burn down houses."
West says when the deputy arrived, the suspect did not respond to commands. The deputy tried to taze the man, but the suspect allegedly lunged for and got a hold of the Taser.
West says the deputy shot the man at least once as the suspect charged.
KING-TV reports neighbors say the man lived under a nearby bridge and had some mental issues.
The deputy is a veteran with more than 20 years on the force, according to West. She says he'll be placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation, which is routine in deputy involved shootings.
