Burien man killed in shootout with deputies identified

The man who died after a shootout in Burien with King County sheriff’s deputies Sunday  night has been identified.

Tyrone Bandy, 45, died of gunshot wounds Monday, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a house in the 1200 block of Southwest 160th Street in Burien around 7 p.m. Sunday after Bandy’s live-in girlfriend reported he had assaulted her, sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. DB Gates said Monday. Deputies believed they had probable cause to arrest Bandy, but he refused to come out of the house.

Hostage negotiators spent two hours talking with Bandy, who said he would shoot deputies if they came into the house, Gates said. Bandy began firing from the front of the house toward the street. Deputies returned fire in the second round of shots, wounding Bandy, who later died at Harborview Medical Center.

The deputies involved have been placed on administrative leave, Gates said.
