Just after 6:00 pm this evening, an officer approached a vehicle with no license plates in a parking lot in the 300 Blk 120th Ave NE. During the interaction, the officer fired his weapon. A sergeant in another patrol car also struck the suspect’s vehicle. The female driver fled the scene. Officers attempted to pursue the vehicle but stopped because the suspect was driving recklessly. There are no known injuries.
As is routine, both the officer and the sergeant have been placed on administrative leave. Kirkland police are investigating this incident and will provide any additional information.
