HOQUIAM — A Hoquiam police officer was shot and wounded Wednesday morning while attempting to arrest a man, leading the suspect to barricade inside a house.
Chief Criminal Deputy Steve Shumate told KXRO the officer was shot in the side and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a hospital.
Officers returned fire. It’s unknown if the suspect was hit.
Police said a 53-year-old woman and 49-year-old-man were wanted on arrest warrants. Officers arrested the woman Tuesday but the man was away. As they returned Wednesday, police say the man produced a firearm and shot at the officers.
KOMO news reports that by Wednesday evening, officers had used tear gas in an attempt to flush the man out of the house.
