BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. — Authorities say officers fatally wounded a man who fired shots toward the shore from a sailboat in the waters off Washington state.

Bainbridge Island Police spokeswoman Kellie Stickney says the man opened fire at officers responding to calls around 8:30 p.m. Saturday night in Eagle Harbor.

After an hours-long standoff with police, a Kitsap County regional SWAT team approached the vessel early Sunday.

Stickney says the man aimed his weapon at officers and officers shot him early Sunday morning. She did not know immediately how many officers fired their weapons.

No one else was injured. Ferry service was temporarily suspended Saturday night as a precaution.

The man's identity has not been released.

The Washington State Patrol is leading the investigation into the shooting.

Fired cop says broken window sound made him shoot Jordan Edwards .
Former Balch Springs Police Officer Roy Oliver says the sound of breaking glass prompted him to fire the shots that killed unarmed Texas teen Jordan Edwards, his lawyers claimed in new court documents. Oliver’s partner, Tyler Gross, was yelling for the black Chevrolet Impala — driven by Jordan’s older brother — to stop as it left a house party on April 29.
