A man who was shot over the weekend by Edmonds police officers after he allegedly leveled a .22-caliber rifle them has been released from Harborview Medical Center and booked into Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of assault in the second degree.
The 27-year-old was identified as Aaron K. Eckley in a news release from Aaron Snell of the Everett Police Department, on behalf of the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, which investigates officer-involved shootings in the county.
Police said Eckley has a history of mental illness. He made no threats to the citizens who called 911 to report he was walking down an Edmonds street Saturday morning with the rifle. He refused to put down the gun after police gave several verbal commands for him to do so, police said, and officers fired when he allegedly aimed it at them.
The two officers are a sergeant and a corporal with 15 years’ and 14 years’ experience on the Edmonds police force. Both have been placed on administrative leave.

A 27-year-old man who was carrying a rifle down a street in Edmonds this morning is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center after police fired at him following a verbal confrontation, police said.
The two Edmonds police officers at the scene were not injured.
Police spokesman Aaron Snell, who is with the Everett police, said the Edmonds man had been walking in an area near Edmonds Elementary brandishing a rifle. His behavior prompted two 911 calls from nearby residents beginning around 7:30 a.m. It doesn’t appear the man discharged the weapon.

An Edmonds police officer charged with having sex with a woman he had detained in May has resigned from the department.
Officer Daniel Lavely was charged on Nov. 1 with first-degree custodial sexual misconduct, a felony. Lavely, 48, had been with the Edmonds Police Department for eight years.
Lavely’s resignation came after he was told that the department had investigated his alleged crimes and he faced possible termination, according to a department press release.
According to charges filed by Snohomish County Deputy Prosecutor Adam Cornell, Lavely first contacted the alleged victim, a 28-year-old Seattle woman, after she reportedly jaywalked on Highway 99 in Edmonds on the night of May 6.
Early the next morning, Lavely encountered the same woman while responding to a 911 call about her fleeing from the emergency room at Swedish Medical Center, Edmonds Campus. Lavely found the woman at a nearby motel and placed her in the back of his patrol car.
The Seattle woman told investigators that Lavely drove her to the “poorly lit back parking lot” of the Burlington Coat Factory in Edmonds and forced the woman into sex, charges said.
While Everett police say the woman was not handcuffed, the charges say that she was “detained, under arrest or in the custody of the defendant.”
Everett police were brought in to investigate the sexual-misconduct allegation.

Edmonds police arrested four men today after gunshots were fired at Yost Park.
Police say that around 3 a.m. officers were dispatched to the neighborhood near the park, in the 9500 block of Bowdoin Way, for reports of gunshots. The first officer to arrive spotted four people at the park entrance. Two of the men ran off while the two remaining men were detained.
A police dog was brought to the area and an officer announced that the dog was about to be unleashed, prompting one man to come out of the woods, police said. A firearm was later located inside the park.
Three of the men were booked into the Snohomish County Jail, police said. The fourth man was located at his Edmonds home several hours later and was still being questioned by police this afternoon.
