12-hour standoff in Thurston County leads to one injured and arrested

A nearly 12-hour standoff in Thurston county ended with shots fired and a 50-year-old man behind bars Thursday evening.

At around 10:30 Thursday morning, sheriff’s deputies responded to a home in Tumwater to carry out an eviction, and the resident barricaded himself inside.

Deputies say at one point, gunfire was exchanged, and the man suffered minor injuries.

He was taken into custody around 10 p.m.

No law enforcement personnel were hurt.

An investigation is being conducted as per protocol into the use of force by the officers.
