Wal-Mart shootout leaves 2 dead
PORT ORCHARD | Sheriff’s officers said a gunman killed a shopper and wounded two deputies at a Wal-Mart here before he was killed by police fire.
Kitsap County sheriff’s spokesman Scott Wilson said a man was fatally shot by deputies outside the store in Port Orchard, while a young woman died after being taken to a Tacoma hospital.
Mr. Wilson said officers received a call about a suspicious person at the store. He said deputies tried to talk to the man, who then ran and began shooting. Three deputes, including the two wounded, returned fire.
