Man fired shotgun inside Sunnyside hospital

YAKIMA — Police say a man who fired a shotgun in the emergency room of Sunnyside Community Hospital hoped to provoke an officer into “suicide by cop.”

The shotgun blast Saturday didn’t hit anyone, but an officer working as a security guard suffered a cut on his head in the fight to disarm the man.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports the 18-year-old Sunnyside man made a court appearance Monday and was ordered held on $100,000 bail on suspicion of assault.

A police statement filed in court says officers believe the man was trying to put the guard into a situation to fire a fatal shot.
