SeaTac suspect shot by deputy tops police blotter

SeaTac robbery suspect shot by officer near mosque
A man who allegedly beat and robbed another man inside a SeaTac mosque was shot and wounded by a King County sheriff's deputy after he then tried to run over deputies with a stolen car Thursday morning, June 19, according to sheriff's spokesperson Cindi West. The mosque, Seatac Masjid, is located at 3040 S. 150th St. A man who went into the mosque to pray just after 8 a.m. apparently startled another man who was sleeping. He awoke, jumped up, and began punching the other man, taking his wallet and car keys. He fled after the victim was able to distract him by throwing a bag at him, West said. The victim then phoned 911. Deputies quickly arrived and were met with the sound of a car starting up behind the mosque. One deputy had to jump out of the way because

she heard the vehicle gunning it toward her, West said. The deputy was running for her life, West said. The suspect had stolen a car and was aiming it at the deputy. At least one deputy fired at the suspect's car. The suspect then drove through a tent set up behind the mosque for meetings and flipped the car onto its roof after striking a neighbor's fence. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Deputies said the man has a history of mental illness.
