Dead body found after seven-hour standoff at Auburn house

An adult male was taken into custody, according to KC Sheriff’s Office.

A dead body was found in an Auburn home after a standoff between King County Sheriff’s Office deputies and a man inside the house on Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Deputies responded to a disturbance call at the house around 1:30 p.m., public information officer Tim Meyer said.

The suspect would not leave the house, so the SWAT team and crisis negotiators worked for over seven hours before deputies were able to arrest the man at 8:45 p.m., Meyer said.

After the man was arrested, deputies found the body inside the house. They have not determined the cause of death yet, Meyer said. The victim’s age, sex and identity have not been released yet.

The investigation is active and ongoing so limited information is available, Meyer said.
