King County deputies shot a man Tuesday morning following a domestic violence call.

According to reports, a call came to the sheriff’s office around 4 a.m. by a woman claiming she was injured by her boyfriend at her home in the 29500 block of SE 472 Street in unincorporated King County, south east of downtown Enumclaw.

She told deputies her boyfriend struck her and her 13 year-old son and then locked himself in a room that contained guns, a press release stated.

Deputies arrived at the home and treated the woman and child’s injuries. Her second child appeared to not be injured.

While deputies were on scene, the boyfriend turned off the interior house lights. There were also no streetlights.

One deputy, who was watching the house with a night vision device, saw the boyfriend walk toward them with a rifle.

Deputies ordered him to drop the gun. Instead, he pointed the rifle at the deputies. One deputy fired, hitting the boyfriend multiple times.

The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries, but is expected to survive.

The case will be investigated and forwarded to the King County Prosecutor’s Office for determination of charges on the suspect.
