Man shoots at suspect outside home

An off-duty Secret Service agent confronted a man who was videotaping the agent’s daughter through a bathroom window at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, in the 4300 block of 86th Avenue S.E. The agent identified himself as a police officer in his backyard, and the suspect made a movement indicating he was armed. According to the police report, “the suspect turned and approached him in an aggressive manner with a possible weapon in his hands.” The agent fired a round at the suspect, but does not know if the suspect was hit.

A Seattle police K-9 unit tracked the suspect, who fled on foot from the backyard into the street, where the track ended. The suspect likely fled the area in a vehicle. Two witnesses were present, but there is no further suspect information or a description of the vehicle. Mercer Island police are continuing to investigate.
