KCSO seeks shooting suspect near CK school

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office responded to a shooting near Esquire Hills Elementary School the morning of May 7.

KCSO assured the public via social media that the incident posed no danger to students, staff or the public, but did station a deputy at the school “out of an abundance of caution.”

At 9:13 a.m., law enforcement went to an address at Wembley Avenue NE between Troy Lane NE and Coventry Court NE. SWAT team members, detectives, and officers searched the residence for the suspect for over two hours. One person was injured.

“We are looking for a possible shooting suspect in that area,” KCSO public information officer Kevin McCarty said.

KCSO advised the public to avoid the area until further notice.
