PUYALLUP, Wash. - A man has been arrested after an hours-long standoff in Puyallup.
Puyallup police got a call around 1:17 p.m. about a 37-year-old man who showed up at his ex-partner's apartment, violating a no-contact domestic violence court order, and hid in the closet.
When officers tried to get the man out of the apartment, he refused several times and then opened fire on the officers.
Officers returned fire and two Puyallup police officers were hit. Both have minor, non-life-threatening injuries.
The man then barricaded himself inside the apartment.
Due to the active nature of the shots being fired, a nearby golf course was evacuated and residents at the River Trail Apartments were told to shelter in place.
After several hours of negotiations, the suspect came out of the apartment and was taken into custody just before 7 p.m.
The suspect was taken to the hospital before being booked in jail for an injury to his hand. It's unclear if he got that injury in the shooting with police or from something else.
Once he's released from the hospital, he will be booked into Pierce County Jail for multiple counts of first-degree assault, violation of a domestic violence no-contact order, and other outstanding warrants.
The Pierce County Force Investigation Team will investigate the shooting. The involved Puyallup officers will be placed on administrative leave, per department policy.
