Police shoot, kill 35-year-old man in Snohomish County

EVERETT, Wash. --  An investigation is underway into a deadly shooting that involved a Snohomish County Sheriff's deputy.

According to the sheriff's office, a Lake Stevens woman called 911 around 9:30 p.m. Sunday to report her husband was suicidal and wanted police to kill him.

Deputies found the 35-year-old man about an hour later under the US 2 trestle on Ebey Island. When deputies tried to talk to the man, he came out with what appeared to be a weapon. The deputies opened fire, killing the man.

The responding deputies were not injured and there was no danger to the public.

A gun was recovered from the scene.

All three deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave which is standard procedure.
