Shooting in southwest Enumclaw a suicide

Officers were called to the scene at 1:09 p.m.

Enumclaw policed rushed to a Garland Place address at 1:09 p.m. to reports of gunshots on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

Upon arrival, they witnessed the victim — an elderly male — lying outside his home. It’s unclear whether he was alive or dead at that moment.
