Two deputies arrived to find the man in the home’s driveway.
He was put into handcuffs and deputies requested aid a minute later. CPR was performed, but the man was pronounced dead at about 9:25 p.m.
Both deputies were hired by the sheriff’s office a little over a year ago and will be placed on administrative leave, as is standard procedure.
The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team is a team of detectives from various Snohomish County law enforcement agencies who respond to and investigate police use of force incidents and in-custody deaths.
When the SMART investigation is complete, results will be forwarded to the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney, who will make the determination if the use of force was justified.
