A gunman fired shots near and at the Best Western Marina at 300 N. Shoreline on Sunday.
A call for multiple shots fired was made at 8:36 a.m. Officers arrived within five minutes to find a white male suspect in the 300 block of Shoreline. Police found the suspect who then engaged those officers with a handgun, to which they responded with gunfire. The suspect was killed during the standoff. The handgun was said to be empty when it was pointed at police due to it running out.
Multiple bullet holes were found in the area, in both hotel room doors and nearby parked cars. Some of the bullet holes were found at the Super 8 Hotel at 411 N. Shoreline. Witnesses say that he was pointing his gun at cars as they drove by and firing rounds.
Officers believe this may be connected to a robbery at a nearby Subway, but are still investigating.

The two officers involved have been put on administrative leave. This is standard procedure for all officer-involved shootings.
