Deputy stabbed in Yelm shooting identified

THURSTON COUNTY, Wash. — A Thurston County sheriff’s deputy who was stabbed in a shooting that also resulted in the injury of a man last Friday has been identified, authorities said.

Andrea Moore, 35, a three-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, was stabbed within two minutes of arriving at a disturbance at a home in the 16900 block of Holly Street Southeast in Yelm. The deputy told dispatch shots were also fired.

Moore had responded at around 8 p.m. after a 911 caller told police a man was making threats.

Yelm police officers and deputies responded and gave aid to Moore and the suspect.

Moore was taken to St. Peters Hospital in serious but stable condition but has since been released and is recovering at home, officials said Wednesday.

The suspect, a white man in his 40s, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition the day of the incident.

The Regional 3 Critical Incident Investigation Team is investigating.
