DEVELOPING | Islanders urged to avoid Winslow after police shooting

Bainbridge officials are urging people to avoid downtown Winslow after a man was shot Wednesday afternoon near Winslow Way.

Details were initially sparse, but early reports indicate a man was shot by police near Winslow Green.

Police have closed down the area, and roughly 10 police units are currently on-scene near Eagle Harbor Congregational Church.

The man who was shot was taken away by an aid unit and was reportedly being flown to Seattle for medical treatment.

The shooting happened just minutes after an active shooting training drill was wrapping up several blocks away at Bainbridge Island City Hall.
