Bothell, Wash. – Detectives with the Snohomish Count Multiple Agency Response Team are investigating a fatal officer involved shooting incident in Bothell.

At about 10:15 p.m. on October 23rd, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the report of a disturbance at 196th Pl SW and 6th Dr SE. As one deputy arrived, a pick-up truck left the area at a high rate of speed. Believing the vehicle occupant had been involved in the disturbance, the deputy unsuccessfully attempted to stop the pick-up. A pursuit ensued with high speeds and the deputy attempted the PIT maneuver multiple times. The pick-up finally stopped near the intersection of N. Damson Rd and Filbert Rd in Bothell. Shots were fired and the male driver was struck. The male, in his mid-20’s, was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he later died. A female passenger, in her 20’s, was in the pick-up. She was not injured and remained at the scene.

The Medical Examiner’s Office will take custody of the body to determine cause and manner of death and will provide identity once family has been notified.

The intersection of N. Damson Rd and Filbert Rd (SR-524) is closed for the investigation and is not expected to open for several hours.

The investigation is being conducted by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART), a team of detectives from various Snohomish County law enforcement agencies who respond to, and investigate, police use of force incidents. When the SMART investigation is complete, results will be forwarded to the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
