As the King County Sheriff's Office investigates the Feb. 9 fatal domestic incident near Redmond, the office recently released that the victim was an 8-year-old boy. 

The death is considered a homicide.  The child's 37-year-old father was hospitalized in police custody after he had been transported to Harborview Medical Center for self-inflicted, non-life threatening injuries, the office reported on Feb. 11. 

Law enforcement arrived at the home on the 13600 block of 179th Ave Northeast at around 7:50 a.m. and found the boy deceased inside.

Crews from Woodinville Fire & Rescue also responded to the scene and transported the injured man to the hospital.

No one else was injured and there are no other suspects, the sheriff’s office says. 

Detectives from the King County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit are still investigating the case. No more information was available as of Monday morning, according to a sheriff's office spokesperson.
