A police officer shot a man believed to be a suspect in a domestic violence incident Friday at a motel in Edmonds after he advanced at officers while holding a knife, according to police.

Officers responded to the 22100 block of Highway 99 at around noon to investigate the incident involving a 40-year-old suspect and a woman, according to a news release from the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, a task force of detectives from multiple area law enforcement agencies who investigate officers’ use of force. Community members also serve on the SMART team.

Police found probable cause to arrest the man, according to a news release.

The suspect “advanced at” responding officers with a knife, prompting an officer to use a Taser, according to the release. The suspect continued to advance and another officer fired shots.

Officers provided aid to the man until medics arrived and transported him to Harborview Medical Center where he later died from his injuries, according to the release.

No officers were injured, police said.

The Snohomish Medical Examiner is expected to release the man’s identity as well as official cause and manner of death.

The shooting will be investigated by the SMART task force who will present findings to the Snohomish prosecutor’s office for review.

No other information was immediately available.
