Washington Shooting Spree: Man Targets Police; Sergeant Injured

By    |   Thursday, 16 Oct 2014 08:37 PM

A man went on a 30-minute shooting spree in Washington Wednesday, shooting up police stations and patrol cars in three towns and injuring a police sergeant.

Marysville Sgt. James Maples was treated and released after being injured in the shooting spree, Q13 Fox said, but it wasn’t clear whether he was shot or hit with debris from shots near him.

KOMO News reported, though, that he may have been injured when his car crashed into a guard rail, and that he may have suffered a medical episode.

It is unclear whether two sergeants may have been injured.

The suspect, aged 43 from Granite Falls, was shot by police, and is in the hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries, Q13 said.

The shooting spree started in Granite Falls when an unoccupied patrol car was shot at, and then minutes later, the Lake Stevens Police Department reported shots fired. Neither of those two incidents resulted in injuries.

The third report came from a law enforcement vehicle in Marysville.

"We heard gunshots, so we ran inside," Mackenzie Harris, 17, of Marysville, told KOMO News about seeing police officers pull over a pickup truck. She said the truck driver pulled a gun and started shooting.

"While we were running up to my room, we heard, like, two dozen more shots being fired,” Harris told KOMO. “We walked back down stairs and heard cops screaming and a bunch of yelling."

The Daily Press reported that police saw the suspect throw a rifle out of the truck and later found guns in the truck and nearby.
