Wash. Deputy Shoots at Man Pointing Toy Gun

November 16, 2012  | 

A King County (Wash.) Sheriff's deputy fired at but missed hitting a developmentally disabled man who had brandished a toy gun at passing motorists Thursday morning near Cottage Lake.

The man, whom deputies have encountered before, has a "fascination with guns" and had made the handgun out of black plastic Lego blocks, said Deputy Charlie Akers, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office.

Sometime around 11:10 a.m., drivers called 911 to report a man brandishing a handgun at passing cars on Northeast Woodinville-Duvall Road, just east of Mink Road Northeast in unincorporated King County, between Woodinville and Duvall, Akers said.
