UPDATE: Man shot dead by deputy in Fall City identified

UPDATE AT 2:48 P.M.: The deputy who shot Berg has been identified as Mark Orendorff, 54, who has been with the Sheriff’s Office for more than 32 years. He has been placed on paid leave, pending the investigation into the shooting, which is routine.

ORIGINAL POST:

A man fatally shot by a King County sheriff’s deputy in Fall City Monday has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as Eric Todd Berg, 42.

No permanent address is listed for Berg, who died of several gunshot wounds, according to the medical examiner.

Sgt. Cindi West, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office, said a deputy went to a mobile home park about 6:30 a.m. Monday after a resident complained of a man screaming outside.

West said Berg was shot after he took the deputy’s Taser and charged him.  He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he died.

West said the man was not a resident of the mobile home park, but  may have been the friend of a resident. The incident remains under investigation
