Man Killed After Deputy-Involved Shooting at Lucky Eagle Casino

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.

The man was airlifted to St. Peters Hospital in Olympia but died from his injuries.
