HOQUIAM (AP) — A two-day police standoff at a home in the Washington coastal town of Hoquiam ended just before dawn Thursday when a man who had holed up there after allegedly wounding an officer got into a shootout with authorities and the house erupted in flames.
The man came out of the house at about 6 a.m. and went down in an exchange of gunfire with officers, Hoquiam Police Sgt. Brian Dayton told KOMO. Moments later the house was on fire.
There has been no word on the condition of the suspect or the cause of the blaze, which destroyed the home.
