Deputy shoots man with knife in Lewis County
The sheriff's office said the deputy was on patrol just after midnight when he stopped to check on a parked car. The man inside was bleeding from what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts.
The sheriff's office said when the deputy tried to talk, the man lunged out of the car with a large knife and the deputy was forced to shoot. The 64-year-old Napavine man died shortly after medics arrived.
A regional law enforcement team is investigating the shooting.
