Jail officer shoots, wounds escaping inmate in Seattle

Associated Press

SEATTLE – Seattle Police say a King County corrections officer shot and wounded an inmate who escaped from a Seattle hospital Wednesday morning.

Assistant Chief Marc Garth Green said the man had been booked into the King County Jail, accused of killing a woman in Kent last month.

Green said King County jail staff took the man to Harborview Medical Center for treatment Wednesday morning. He escaped and the officers gave chase.

Police said one corrections officer fired two shots, hitting the man in the shoulder near downtown, several blocks from the hospital.

The man was taken back to Harborview Medical Center where he is being treated for injuries that aren’t life-threatening.

Police did not release his name or say why he initially treated at the hospital.
