Inquest ordered into fatal shooting by Seattle police

The Associated Press

The King County executive has ordered an inquest into July’s fatal shooting of a man by Seattle police.

Larry Flynn was shot during a confrontation with officers at Gas Works Park July 30.

Police say officers patrolling Gas Works Park around 2:45 a.m. were approached by a security guard who said a man had attacked him.

Officers approached that man, who then broke a glass bottle and brandished it at them. Officers deployed Tasers but that didn’t subdue the man. The man then lunged at an officer and that’s when two officers fired their weapons.

The King County Prosecutor’s Office recommended the inquest after reviewing the investigation by Seattle police.
