Snohomish County Sniper A Military Vet

It was still unclear Tuesday what prompted a sniper to open fire over the weekend on residents in a wooded neighborhood about 50 miles north of Seattle, wounding a man and hitting several cars before he was killed in a shootout with police. The sniper was likely shot Sunday by a member of the SWAT team that responded, said Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton. No officers were injured.
