Redmond police shoot, kill suspect at Kirkland Safeway gas station

KIRKLAND, Wash. - Redmond police detectives shot and killed a 39-year-old man in a Safeway parking lot Thursday night.

Police said the detectives were searching in Kirkland for somebody they believed to be armed and dangerous, and shots were fired just before 5 p.m. at the Kingsgate Safeway when they encountered the possible suspect.

The suspect -- an adult white man -- was hit and given aid, but ultimately died. Redmond police say they were investigating the man for alleged involvement in felony crimes in King County.

No one else was injured.

Police said it's unclear what, exactly, led to shots being fired. Police did say he was "not compliant" when investigators attempted to take him into custody.

A handgun was found on the man.

Kirkland police, who are assisting with the investigation, said there were "no other outstanding suspects."
