Man Who Fired on Police at Three Stations Gets Shot, Arrested

By    |   Thursday, 16 Oct 2014 10:19 AM

A man driving a white pickup went on a shooting rampage targeting three police stations in Washington state late Wednesday night, injuring a police officer before being shot and arrested.

Fox affiliate Q13 reported that the victim, Sgt. James Maples of the Marysville police unit, was treated and released for a non-life threatening injury from Providence Medical Center in Everett. It is not clear whether Maples was shot directly or injured by "debris from shots," said the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The injuries sustained by the suspect, a 43-year-old Granite Falls man, are not life threatening, the sheriff's office said in a press release.

The incident began around 9:30 p.m. in Great Falls when the man allegedly fired at an unmanned patrol car in the parking lot of the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office with a high-capacity rifle.

Police in Lake Stevens reported minutes later that the same man was firing on their building and vehicles. "Many shots" were fired and "most of the vehicles were hit many times," said Lake Stevens Police Commander Dennis Taylor.

Police soon located the truck and chased it to Marysville, whereupon the suspect again fired on patrol cars before being shot by officers and taken into custody.

"It sounds like the same guy, a person who was in a pickup truck," said Taylor.

"We heard gunshots, so we ran inside," Marysville witness Mackenzie Harris, 17, told KOMO-TV. "While we were running up to my room, we heard, like, two dozen more shots being fired. We walked back down stairs and heard cops screaming and a bunch of yelling."
