Snohomish County deputy shoots knife-wielding man in Monroe

There is not points to locate on the map

 A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy shot a man who police say was coming at officers with a knife outside  a home in Monroe Monday night.

The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and is reported to be in serious condition this morning, according to The Associated Press.

Everett police, who are handling the investigation, said officers were responding to a domestic disturbance call around 10:40 p.m. in the 14900 block of 210th Street Southeast in Monroe.

A woman came out of the house and told deputies her adult son was distraught and had been violent, police said. Police were told he had left the home and was on foot in the neighborhood.

A short time later, according to police, the man, armed with a knife, “emerged from the shadows of the home, and approached deputies.”

When he refused to drop the knife, officers first used a Taser, and then one of the deputies fired her gun, hitting the man.

Everett Police Sgt. Ryan Dalberg said the deputy who shot the man is a sergeant who has been with the department for 25 years.    She is on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure, pending the investigation.
