King county detectives had reason to believe a Shoreline man and his associates were selling narcotics out of their home in Shoreline.

Because it was expected there were weapons in the house and it would be a high-risk situation, a search warrant was served by the TAC-30 SWAT team.

On Thursday morning, August 23, 2018, at 4:32am, police entered the residence in the 19000 block of 16th Ave NE in Shoreline.

Just after making entry into the home, police were confronted by a male suspect in a bedroom. The suspect armed himself with a handgun. 

He was ordered to drop it, but instead moved the handgun towards the TAC-30 members. He was shot by three Deputies.

The 55 year old suspect died from his injuries. Other occupants inside the residence were taken in for questioning.

The Deputies have been with the Sheriff’s Office for 20 years, 18 years and 6 years. 

All three of them were placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard for Officer-involved shootings.
