The incident ended in a crash a few blocks from where it all started, the Motel 6 in the 12000 block of120th Place Northeast.
Officers on patrol said they heard a woman screaming, and she pointed to a man nearby, according to Lt. Mike Murray of the Kirkland Police Department
The 25-year-old man then got into an SUV and tried to drive away. The man drove straight toward an officer on foot, Murray said, and the officer responded by shooting through his windshield, hitting him in the shoulder.
The man continued driving before eventually crashing his car a few blocks away. He was taken to a hospital and is listed in stable condition.
