The Thurston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a deputy-involved shooting in the parking lot of the Lucky Eagle Casino last night that left one suspect dead.

Deputies responding to the report of a suicidal person found a 55-year-old Lakewood man in his car.

They said he stepped out of the vehicle with a gun and ignored commands to drop it. He began to raise the weapon and was fired on by an officer. Chehalis Tribal Police assisted with the response Tuesday night.
