Sheriff’s K-9 unit searches for man on Vashon

A K-9 unit from the King County Sheriff’s Office is on the island this evening, looking for a man involved in a domestic violence incident earlier today.

Sgt. Ryan Abbott, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said the unit arrived on Vashon around 7:45 p.m. to help locate a man who’d had an altercation with his girlfriend earlier in the evening. His firearm discharged during that altercation, and he fled. He is expected to be on foot.

Abbott said deputies have probable cause to arrest him for felony assault. The incident is still under investigation, with more information expected to be forthcoming.
