Police shoot man after he barricades himself in home

A 26-year-old man who’d holed up in an Auburn home for several hours and fired at police officers ended up in Harborview Medical Center on Sept. 2 after officers returned fire.

The man was listed in critical but stable condition and is expected to survive.

At about 11 p.m., Auburn Police Officers who were responding to reports of gunfire in a home in the 29800 block of 111th Avenue Southeast were moving through the back yard, trying to contact residents inside the home, when the man fired at them.

The officers were not hurt, and one person soon left the home safely.

A SWAT team and negotiators then responded. Just after 2 a.m., SWAT officers saw a man with a rifle in hand stepping out the back door and fired at him.

Following standard protocol, a Renton officer and two officers from the Port of Seattle were later placed on administrative leave.
