DUVALL, Wash. — Witnesses on Tuesday said the 47-year-old Woodinville man accused of shooting and wounding a Duvall police officer the night before was acting crazy and looking for trouble.

“This gentleman pulls up in an SUV. Pulls on top of the median, which is a flower bed, and says, ‘Want to play?’ And opens fire (with) paintballs at us. Immediately we ducked and covered and I have several bruises and welts on myself,” one witness said.

A Duvall policeman was called when the man allegedly hitting a woman with paintballs outside a church in Duvall.

When confronted about attacking people with paintballs, the man allegedly pulled out a real gun and shot the officer in the thigh. Then he jumped in a vehicle and took off.

Police chased the suspect from Duvall to Fall City, reaching speeds of 90 mph. The gunman even shot out an officer's back window and rear-view mirror, police said.

A spike strip blew out two tires on his SUV, causing him to crash near Fall City.

Police arrested the man after a long standoff and booked him into the King County Jail pending charges.

Meanwhile, the wounded Duvall police officer,  11-year veteran Sgt.  Michael DeBock, was released from Evergreen Hospital Tuesday morning.
