A person identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as 29-year-old Eucytus was found dead in the residence following the shooting. The Medical Examiner’s Office says the death was suicide by gunshot.

Investigators haven’t said if Eucytus fired a gun at the deputies but said they found evidence that all three deputies “probably returned fire.” More testing will be done to confirm that was the case, investigators said.
