WENATCHEE — The Chelan County coroner says his office is still trying to notify the family of a man who was shot to death Saturday by police officers in Wenatchee.
The coroner says no information on the 24-year-old man will be released until after an autopsy Tuesday.
A press release put out by the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office shortly after the shooting stated that “officers” had returned fire when the man shot at officers. But this morning the sheriff’s office said only one offier fired at the man after he fired at them as they attempted to arrest him on a felony warrant at a residence.
The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office and the Washington State Patrol are investigating the shooting.
