Jefferson County Sheriff's Office involved in shooting near Brinnon

No officers were hurt in the shooting. The Washington State Patrol is assisting with the investigation.

BRINNON, Wash. — The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) was involved in a shooting near Brinnon, just north of Dosewallips State Park on Friday, according to the Washington State Patrol (WSP).

WSP said a JCSO detective was following up on an investigation and made contact with a man and woman in the area. The man reportedly had an outstanding warrant and fled from the detective in his vehicle.

According to WSP, the man's vehicle collided with a parked car approximately two hours later and the man fled the scene on foot.

The man was located nearby behind a shed by the detective and another deputy. WSP said the man brandished a handgun, which led to the deputies firing multiple rounds.

No officers were injured in the shooting. WSP has not confirmed whether anyone else was injured in the shooting. 

Dosewallips Road is closed at Highway 101 in Brinnon due to the investigation, according to Jefferson County Emergency Management.  

People are asked to stay away from the area while the investigation is ongoing.
