SAMMAMISH, Wash. — Authorities in suburban Seattle say they have shot and wounded a man as they were investigating a deadly car prowl.

The Seattle Times reports Saturday that the King County Sheriff’s Office went to an apartment late Friday where they believed the suspect was staying.

A man and a 16-year-old boy emerged and pointed handguns at deputies. Police returned fire.

The man is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. His identity has not been released.

The teen was arrested early Saturday.

Deputies have not said if either the man or the teen was involved in the car prowl earlier in the week.
