Four officers arrived at the scene and called to the man, who was also wearing satchel and carrying flares, before reporting “shots fired,” police said. It is not immediately clear if the police or the man shot first or who fired the fatal shot. After medical aid arrived, the officers approached the man, who “appeared to still have his weapon” near him and “determined that he had been shot” and killed at the scene.
The four male officers involved-none of whom were injured-were placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard practice, until the investigation is complete, Tacoma police said. An ICE spokesperson also confirmed the shooting to The Daily Beast and said no employees were hurt.
