Sheriff Backs Deputy in Shooting

NAPAVINE, Wash. — Lewis County Sheriff Steve Mansfield says a deputy apparently was justified in fatally shooting a man at Napavine.

Mansfield told KING that it appears the deputy followed training in an encounter early Monday near a home where a man armed with a knife had reportedly tried to break in.

Deputy Stacy Brown says there are stab marks through the front door and through the hood of a parked pickup truck.

The sheriff’s office says the deputy saw the suspect and fired when he refused to take his hands out of his pockets and charged the deputy. The 33-year-old Napavine man died at the scene.

Brown says investigators think the man and the resident may have known each other.

    Sure is nice to see the brass back a guy up instead of throwing him under the wheels of the bus.

    Sounds like a good shoot to me as well. Glad to see the head of the agency ready to stand up for his people right away.
