The Seattle Times is reporting that Renton Police shot and wounded a 24-year-old man wanted in connection with the assault and subsequent lockdown in Kirkland on September 11th.
The man was shot after he sprayed officers with a garden hose and then ran, according to Sgt. Pat Lowery of the Kent Police Department. The man suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, police said. His condition was not immediately known.
Renton police went to a home in the 2100 block of Northeast 23rd Street at the request of the Kirkland Police Department, according to Lowery. Police said the man's parents live at the home.
The man is suspected of pointing a gun in the face of a Kirkland police officer who was trying to take him into custody earlier this month, Lowery said.
On September 11th, a man assaulted a bus driver, then fled into a downtown Kirkland hotel to evade the police. The Kirkland Police Department searched the hotel and next door library but the accused man escaped.
