Deputy Shoots Man Holding Knife In Boulevard Park Apartment
The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a deputy shot and seriously wounded a man who was holding a knife during a domestic violence disturbance Friday night (Sept. 2nd).
The incident occurred about 10:50 p.m. inside an apartment at 10002 Des Moines Memorial Drive in the Boulevard Park neighborhood.
Two deputies had responded to a 911 call about a man assaulting his wife at that apartment. Deputies arrived and the man was shot about two minutes later. The wife and two other females were inside the apartment at the time of the shooting.
The suspect is 36-years old and lives at the location, as does his 35-year old wife. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. There is a current No Contact Order in place prohibiting contact between the man and his wife and children. He is also a convicted felon with two Assault Third Degree convictions.
Sheriff’s deputies were last at the apartment in August of 2010 when the man was arrested on domestic violence charges.
The deputy who fired the shot is a veteran officer with at least 25 years working at the Sheriff’s Office.
The joint investigation of the shooting will be conducted by the Major Crimes Unit of the Sheriff’s Office, along with detectives from the Bothell Police Department.
