Suspected intruder shot in Woodinville-area home

UPDATE 9:15 p.m | King County Sheriff’s Office detectives are still looking for a woman who escaped from the burglary on foot, according to Sgt. Cindi West. The female suspect is described as a white, about 20 years old, dark-haired and was last seen wearing a black T-shirt.

Her male accomplice, who was shot in both the stomach and groin, is at Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, said West.

The  homeowner said he at first kept his gun pointed at the burglars while calling 911, but shot the man when he “rushed” toward him because he feared for his life, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office release.
