A man and a woman are dead in the wake of a Milton shooting that involved a police officer.

Milton police responded to a domestic violence call Monday afternoon. A resident of an apartment complex called 911 to report that a man in the parking lot outside had a gun and was threatening a woman.

Police arrived on scene at the apartment complex parking lot. KIRO 7 reports that the man was holding the woman at gunpoint with his arm around her. Police ordered the man to drop his gun.

Instead of dropping his firearm, the man shot the woman. A Milton Police sergeant quickly shot the man.

There was some kind of relationship between the man and woman, but police did not know the nature of that relationship Monday afternoon. The sergeant is a 17-year veteran of the Milton police force.
