Detectives from around the county spent much of Sunday morning at the scene of the shooting.

Tense moments for several Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputies responding to a domestic violence call southeast of Everett Saturday night. Just before 10 PM Snohomish County 911 received a call from a woman stating that she was being assaulted and threatened with a weapon by her 67-year-old husband. As deputies arrived at the home in the 4100 block of 120th Place SE in Everett the man reportedly fired multiple shots at the deputies.

Several deputies returned fire. No deputies were injured but four have been placed on administrative leave which is standard procedure when an officer fires their weapon. The man who fired at deputies held them at bay for several minutes until they were able to take him into custody. He suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and deputies gave aid to the man. He was then transported to Providence Regional Medical Center.

It has not been revealed if the man was hit by deputies or his wound was self inflicted. The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team is investigating the shooting. Julie Moore, a spokesperson for the S.M.A.R.T. says more information about the incident and the deputies who have been placed on leave will be forthcoming.
