Burien man killed in shootout Sunday night identified
The King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Tuesday identified the man who was killed after a shootout with police in Burien Sunday night (Aug. 10) as Tyrone “Ty” Bandy, 45.
Bandy died of gunshot wounds early Monday morning, after being shot by police at his home in the 1200 block of SW 160th Street.
As we previously reported, deputies responded to Bandy’s house around 7 p.m. Sunday night after his live-in girlfriend called 911 to report that he had assaulted her.
Police believed they had probable cause to arrest him, but Bandy refused and barricaded himself inside his home.
Hostage negotiators were called in, as was a SWAT team. Bandy, who police say was intoxicated at the time, told police he would shoot them if they tried to enter his house. Later in the evening, Bandy began firing from the front of the house toward the street. Police returned fire in the second round of gunshots, fatally wounding Bandy, who died after being taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Police involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave, as is custom.
