LYNNWOOD — Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies were in a standoff for hours Thursday night with an armed, barricaded man east of Lynnwood.
Deputies were called around 5:15 p.m. to the home in the 2700 block of Crawford Road, after a man, 44, allegedly threatened to hurt his family and burn down their house.
At the time, deputies believed the man was armed with a shotgun and a knife. He appeared intoxicated.
Patrol deputies got a remaining family member safely from the home. The man, meanwhile, barricaded himself inside a fifth-wheel trailer behind the home, the sheriff’s office reported.
The Region 1 SWAT team responded to the scene. Roads in the neighborhood were shut down.
The standoff ended about seven hours after it began when the man left the trailer and surrendered. Nobody was injured.
A .22-caliber lever action rifle, a pellet gun and a knife were seized. The man was booked into the county jail in Everett for investigation of first-degree assault and felony harassment.
