Standoff Turns Deadly in Selah

KIT

What started as a search warrant inside a Selah motor home turned into a deadly shootout.

Yakima County Sheriff’s Deputies say a car prowl incident earlier Friday led them to a motor home on Rushmore Road.

Deputies took five people into custody but tell KNDO News one man refused to come out. That one man then shot at officers, who quickly returned fire.

They waited for the Yakima Police SWAT Unit to arrive and communicated with the suspect over the phone.

Deputies say the man agreed to come outside but he also brought along his gun.

“At that time he opened fire. There were more shots exchanged. The suspect was shot and at this time the information I have is that he is deceased,” said Deputy Chief John Durand.

The sheriff’s office did not identify either the man who was killed or the officers who fired. Deputies say no officers were hurt, but several patrol cars were damaged by gunshots.

Durand says an iPhone taken in the car prowl was tracked to the Selah property.
