A man who barricaded himself inside a house in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood after allegedly shooting his mother has been found dead in the home, Seattle police said.
Officers were called to the 1900 block of 32nd Avenue West around 5:15 p.m. after receiving reports of a family disturbance, said Detective Valerie Carson, a police spokesperson. When they arrived, they heard shots from inside the house, she said.
Shortly after, a 44-year-old woman came out with several gunshot wounds to her legs, Carson said. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition, police said.
Police said they used a PA system to safely call out two additional members of the household, who were not injured, but the suspect barricaded himself inside the house.
“After a judge approved a warrant to enter the home and arrest the suspect, SWAT team members made entry,” police said in their blotter. “SWAT officers found the 20-year-old suspect deceased in the home, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
