King County sheriff’s deputies shot and wounded a man near Auburn while serving an arrest warrant Saturday afternoon.

Just before 5 p.m., several deputies, accompanied by Department of Corrections staff, arrested a 27-year-old man outside a home near Trout Lake, according to King County sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathleen Larson.

Inside the home, a second man “confronted” deputies, claiming to be armed, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release. When the man “reached for what deputies feared was a weapon,” the officers opened fire, according to the release.

The man was listed in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center. Sheriff’s deputies were investigating the incident.
