WA: Resident Finds, Fights, and Fires; Police Investigate

No charges were filed.

The resident fired his pistol after it appeared to him the suspect was reaching into his waistband for a firearm. The suspect ran and the resident fired again for a total of four shots. He told officers he wasn’t aiming at the suspect. He wanted him to stop; he was described as cooperative with officers.

Officers were investigating whether the resident should be cited for reckless endangerment for firing four rounds at a fleeing suspect and into an unknown backdrop. The resident’s fear the suspect had a gun also could support a claim of self-defense.
