Suspect shot, ending Lakewood standoff

LAKEWOOD, Wash. -- A SWAT situation ended in Lakewood Sunday night after police shot the suspect, sending him to the hospital.

Police say they went to check on a report of a person featured on Washington's Most Wanted list at an apartment complex in Lakewood.

When they arrived, the man's grandfather told officers he wasn't at home, but stopped by sometimes. Officers went inside to look when the suspect shot at them.

The officers were able to retreat without injury and called in SWAT. 

Police say several hours later the suspect fired two rounds and threatened officers. At that point, officers fired at the suspect, who was taken into custody, where his condition is not known.

A woman was also inside at the time and was taken into custody. She was not injured.
