A man was wounded last night during a shootout with Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies.


The shootings occurred after the 48-year-old Lake Goodwin man got into a fight with another man outside the Road House Tavern, 4915 Lakewood Road.


At about 10:30 p.m. the bartender of the Lake Goodwin tavern called 911 to report the fight. Two deputies found one man alone on a street about a block west of the bar. The three exchanged gunfire – only the man was struck, said Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant.


The man was taken to Providence Everett Medical Center and is being treated for his wounds, said Bryant.


The deputies, who have been on the force 14 and two years, are on administrative leave pending the investigation of the incident, Bryant said.


Everett police are leading the investigation because the sheriff’s office is involved in the incident. Anyone with information pertaining to this incident are urged to call the Everett Police Department Tip Line at (425) 257-8450.
