A 67-year-old man was shot in the leg by a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy Saturday during a domestic-violence investigation, according to police.

A news release did not identify the deputy or the shooting victim.
The shooting occurred in the 4100 block of 120th Place SE in Everett at approximately 9:50 p.m. after a woman called 911 to report she was being assaulted by her husband and threatened with a weapon. When deputies arrived, they confronted the man and several shots were fired. The deputies were not injured.
