EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says the man shot by sheriff’s deputies Wednesday near Lynnwood died of multiple gunshot wounds.
The deputies were investigating a report that 46-year-old Matthew Scott Wiese had violated a protection order granted to his wife.
The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/17sxKfS) investigators have not said whether Wiese was armed at the time.
