Fife man holding 4-year-old son hostage shot dead
KOMO-TV reported a police SWAT team shot the Fife resident early Friday morning.
Fife police say the incident started around 10:15 p.m. Thursday when the man, who was drunk and depressed over the death of a friend, called his mother to his home to care for his son.
They say he first allowed his mother to take the boy and then became aggressive and pulled him away from her.
Officers say the man was using his son as a shield inside the house and at one point dangled his son out a second-floor window. The man has had prior arrests and interactions with law enforcement.
