EDMONDS — A man fatally shot by Edmonds police has been identified.
Police were called around noon on April 22 to a motel in the 22100 block of Highway 99, for a report of a domestic violence incident between a man and a woman.
There, Edmonds officers confronted William Houseworth II, 42.
“The suspect advanced at officers while armed with a knife,” according to the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, a cadre of detectives who investigate police use of force.
One officer shocked him with a stun gun, and when the man kept moving, another officer fired a gun, investigators reported.
Houseworth later died at a hospital, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Wednesday. An autopsy showed he died of the gunshot wounds.
None of the officers were injured.
