Redmond police were involved in a shooting at the Kingsgate Safeway Gas Station in Kirkland, the Redmond Police Department tweeted at approximately 5:15 p.m. on Thursday.

According to a news release by the city of Kirkland, Redmond Police Detectives were involved in the incident and an adult male suspect was shot. The Redmond Officers administered CPR on the man and called for additional aid to respond. The suspect died at the scene after continued treatment from both medics and firefighters were unsuccessful.

No other injuries were reported and there currently are no other outstanding suspects, police said.

The Kirkland Police department will investigate the shooting as requested by Redmond. Asking an outside agency to investigate officer-involved incidents is common practice, Kirkland’s news release states.
