ALGER, Wash. (AP) A man fatally shot a sheriff's deputy responding to a call Tuesday in northwestern Washington state, then led authorities on a car chase and killed five other people before turning himself in, officials said. Two others were wounded.
A state trooper was among those injured in Skagit County, north of Seattle, authorities said. The dead were found at multiple scenes, state trooper Keith Leary said at a news conference.
Among the dead were the deputy and another person killed at the same location; two construction workers who were found shot nearby; a person killed at another location; and a motorist fatally shot on I-5.
A motorcyclist was shot and wounded at a gas station in the town of Alger, and the trooper was wounded in the arm as the shooter raced along I-5, authorities said.
The man, reportedly known to Skagit County authorities, eventually turned himself in at a Skagit County sheriff's office in Mount Vernon.
