Update WA: Gun Beats Knife in Douglas County, Suspect Dies
Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal reports a suspect in an alleged East Wenatchee burglary died of gunshot wounds after a confrontation with the burglary victim several hours later Wednesday night.
Upon returning to the victim’s home around 8 p.m., Gjesdal says the suspect shot at the victim, grazing him in the chest.
The suspect then followed the victim into the street, stabbing him several times in the thigh. The victim then shot the suspect numerous times, emptying his gun of bullets.
Moments later, sheriff’s deputies arrived at the victim’s residence, where they saw the victim and suspect, 35 year-old Seth Williams, standing in the street, both seriously wounded.
