Man shot by troopers on I-5 in Seattle dies at hospital

SEATTLE — A man shot by Washington State Patrol troopers on Interstate 5 in Seattle has died at a hospital.
A nursing supervisor at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle says the man died Monday night shortly after his arrival. He has not been identified.
The southbound lanes of the freeway reopened about midnight after a five-hour closure at the Ship Canal Bridge where the man stopped his truck, set it on fire and spray-painted a large green circle on the freeway.
Seattle police say when troopers arrived the man displayed a knife. A trooper used a Taser, but the man still advanced with his knife so two troopers shot him.
The incident backed up traffic for miles. Troopers turned some cars around and diverted others. Some bus passengers got out and walked.
