WOODINVILLE — After allegedly stabbing someone, fleeing police in a high-speed chase from Lynnwood to Woodinville and being shot by a deputy last week, a man has been released from Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and jailed in Everett.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said the 42-year-old was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of assault in the first degree, assault in the second degree and attempting to elude.
Early the morning of Oct. 31, reports came in to 911 of a car crash at 144th Street SW and Meadow Road near Martha Lake. The suspect reportedly backed into a Camaro with his SUV. Both drivers argued, and the SUV driver allegedly stabbed the Camaro driver and hit the car’s hood with a hatchet.
A high-speed chase that reportedly reached 100 mph ended when the man was shot by a Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy in the 19500 block of 136th Avenue NE in Woodinville, near Woodinville High School.
The shooting is being investigated by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART), a group of local detectives tasked with investigating law enforcement use of potentially lethal force. This is the seventh incident SMART has investigated this year.
