MILL CREEK — The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team was investigating after a man allegedly rammed patrol vehicles and a sheriff’s deputy fired a gun Tuesday in a Safeway parking lot east of Mill Creek, according to a news release.

SMART is a task force of detectives that reviews police use of force. There were no reports of injuries.

According to the news release, Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies conducted a welfare check around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday in the 5800 block of 134th Place SE. They found a man sitting in a parked car. They learned it was reported stolen by checking the plate identification, said Julie Moore, a spokesperson for SMART.

Deputies tried talking to the man and giving commands. The man then allegedly rammed “multiple police vehicles” and a bystander’s vehicle, according to the news release.

A deputy fired one shot into the vehicle, missing the man.

The man complied with their commands and was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.
