BONNEY LAKE, Wash. — A man was shot and killed after he forced his way into a home near Bonney Lake on Tuesday.

At 11:09 a.m., a 46-year-old man arrived at the home in the 3200 block of 214th Avenue East and forced his way inside in what was believed to be a home invasion robbery, Alex Richard with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said.

After receiving reports from neighbors about shots fired, deputies arrived to find a man inside the house with a gunshot wound.
