A man was killed by Tukwila police officers following an hour-long standoff Thursday night.
At about 5:20 p.m., the man and another man got in to an altercation at an apartment complex in the 5800 block of South 152 Place, according to a media release from the Tukwila Police Department.
The man who was later killed by police shot at the other man, who had gotten out of his car.
The gunshot blew out the window of the car and injured the man. He drove toward the Tukwila Police station, 6200 Southcenter Blvd. On the way, he crashed into cars on 62nd Avenue, just outside the police department.
As officers helped the man, he told them about the shooting. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment, police reported.
Officers went to the apartment complex to find the shooting suspect. Officers tried for about an hour to get him to come out. He refused to surrender and shot at officers with a shotgun, according to police.
Two officers fired at him, and he was hit and killed. No officers or bystanders were injured.
Detectives and the regional officer involved shooting investigation team are investigating. The officers that fired their weapons will be on paid administrative leave while the incident is investigated, the department said.
