LACEY, Wash. (AP) – Authorities say a domestic violence incident turned into a deadly shooting between two officers and the man they were trying to arrest.
KING5 reports police in Lacey, Washington, showed up to a home Thursday night after a woman called saying she had been attacked and had just left the residence.
