Snohomish County authorities fatally shot a 46-year-old Lynnwood man in a confrontation Wednesday night, officials said.
The shooting took place around 7 p.m. as Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies were investigating a court-order violation near Lynnwood’s Martha Lake, according to Aaron Snell of the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team. The confrontation began when deputies found the subject of the order near the intersection of 152nd Place Southwest and Meadow Road, Snell said.
Neighbors told several local television stations that the man was throwing firecrackers at deputies, but Snell could not confirm that.
The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he died.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
