Man suffers gunshot after police pursuit in Bothell

The man, who reportedly was suicidal, was stopped after a slow-speed pursuit ended in Bothell.

BOTHELL -- A reportedly suicidal Edmonds man was shot during a confrontation with police in north King County on Friday after a slow-speed pursuit that began near his home.
The man's condition was not available at press time.
His wife called 911 about 1:30 p.m. Friday to report that her husband, 68, was suicidal and had left their house in south Edmonds with a gun, according to police and information broadcast across police radios.
Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace officers followed the man in his vehicle into the Bothell area and attempted to get him to stop. When he did not comply, police from King County laid down spike strips along Highway 522.
The driver kept going but then stopped near a golf course in the 16700 block of 96th Avenue NE.
Shots were fired. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, said Everett police officer Aaron Snell, a spokesman for the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, which handles officer-involved shootings.
No other injuries were reported.
Agencies involved in the pursuit and shooting were Edmonds Police Department, Mountlake Terrace Police Department and Bothell Police Department, Snell said.
It was not immediately clear how the man was shot.
The city of Bothell advised drivers to stay clear of the area and seek alternate routes.
