WINSLOW -- Police shot a man Wednesday after he attempted to flee from police on Bainbridge Island, according to a witness.
A helicopter was called to fly the man to a hospital for medical treatment.
Clarence Moriwaki, who lives in a condo near the entrance to the Winslow Green business and residential complex,, said he heard a crash shortly after 2 p.m. and went to his window to see what had happened.
Moriwaki said he saw two law enforcement vehicles -- one from Bainbridge Island police and one from the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office -- trap a Ford Mustang, which was trying to reverse out of the area.
The officers were out of their cars, giving the driver orders, Moriwaki said. The officers' orders were loud enough to be heard through Moriwaki's windows.
"They were saying, 'Stop it! Don't reach for anything!' Things like that," Moriwaki said.
Moriwaki said he heard an officer say "knife" while giving the orders. The officer who shot the driver -- Moriwaki identified him as a Bainbridge Island officer -- fired twice.
The suspect could be heard yelling in pain, Moriwaki said. He was removed from the car, placed on a gurney and taken from the scene by ambulance.
Moriwaki described the man who was shot as a white male in his 20s or 30s.
The shooting came the same day as an active shooter drill at Bainbridge City Hall.
"This was not a drill," Moriwaki said, adding he was impressed by how quickly the officers moved in to pin the Mustang.
Early reports say the car had dropped off a person who was overdosing, then ran from police.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
