Officers used a loudspeaker to call the suspect outside, but investigators say he looked out a window and didn’t respond.
Police then requested SWAT involvement, and during negotiation attempts, the man pointed a gun out the window, according to a statement from investigators.
Police obtained a warrant for his arrest. The man went into the backyard.
Around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, five SWAT team members entered the yard and gave commands, and then two of them shot him, investigators said.
The man, whose name has not been released, died at the scene.
The man had two handguns, according to the investigative team. Investigators didn’t say whether he fired or was holding a gun when he was shot. No members of law enforcement were hurt.
The officers who shot the man were identified only as an Everett officer and a Snohomish County deputy. Both were put on paid leave.
The Skagit-Island County Multiple Agency Response Team investigates police use of deadly force.
