LAKEWOOD, Wash. — A shooting left one person dead and another hospitalized in Lakewood Sunday, and the suspect was only arrested after a standoff with police.
The Lakewood Police Department says officers got a call of gunshots inside a home near 146th St SW and Woodbrook Dr. SW around 9:44 a.m. When police arrived, they found that the suspected shooter had barricaded himself inside.
A SWAT team was called in, and the suspect, a 38-year-old man with a prior history with police, eventually surrendered peacefully after being locked in for about 90 minutes.
Officers found two people had been shot inside the home. A 52-year-old man was dead and a 29-year-old man was transported to the hospital.
It’s not clear what the relationship between the suspect and victims is.
Investigators are in the area collecting evidence and working to figure out what led up to the shooting.
