MONROE — A Monroe man opened fire on his neighbor, then fired on deputies who responded to the scene, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

Ultimately, the man was taken into custody and nobody was injured.

Around 11:30 a.m., the suspect, 36, “followed his neighbor and fired several rounds at him” in the 14000 block of Ingraham Road, according to the sheriff’s office.

Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies responded.

Monroe police were also called in to the scene as backup.

Law enforcement asked that people avoid the area if possible. Those who live nearby were advised to stay indoors.

The suspect fired multiple gunshots at responding deputies, sheriff’s spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe said. Law enforcement negotiated with the suspect on the phone, and he surrendered before an on-duty SWAT team could assemble. The suspect was taken to the Snohomish County Jail. He was expected to be booked for investigation of first-degree assault, the sheriff’s office announced.

An investigation continued Tuesday afternoon.
