ShareThe Edmonds man shot by police Oct. 26 in Bothell, now identified as 68-year old Robert A. Marvin, has been charged with second-degree assault, according to a press release from Everett Police Department Community Information Officer Aaron Snell.
Marvin remains in Harborview Medical Center recovering from his wounds. He is expected to survive injuries sustained during the incident.
On Oct. 26 multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in a nearly six-mile slow speed pursuit of Marvin after his wife reported he was suicidal and left their Edmonds home with a weapon.
When Marvin refused to stop, a spike strip was deployed to flatten the tires of his GMC Sierra. Shortly thereafter, the GMC stopped in the 16700 block of 96th Ave. NE in Bothell, near the Wayne Golf Course, where Marvin refused to get out and displayed a weapon out the window, Snell said.
Shots were fired and Marvin was struck several times.
The officers involved in the shooting are a 22-year veteran of the Edmonds Police Department and a sergeant from Mountlake Terrace Police Department with 16 years of experience. Both are currently on administrative leave.
A SMART investigation was initiated as Snohomish County law enforcement officers were involved in the incident and their respective agencies requested the team investigate.
Anyone who witnessed or has information about the incident is requested to contact the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at (425) 388-3845.
