POULSO – A Kitsap County sheriff’s spokesman says law-enforcement officers fatally shot a man outside a tire store in Poulsbo Wednesday evening.
Deputy Scott Wilson said he could not immediately confirm whether it was Poulsbo police who shot the young man, but three city officers were placed on administrative leave. No officers were injured.
The dead man was not immediately identified.
The Kitsap Sun reports that witnesses said they had seen a man yelling and acting strangely outside the Les Schwab store. The witnesses reported hearing one or more shots, then nothing until police showed up.
After police arrived, the newspaper says people at nearby businesses said they heard a single shot followed by a volley of gunfire.
