    SKAGIT COUNTY, Wash. -- A total of eight people have been shot and six of them have died including a Skagit County Sheriff’s Deputy during a shooting rampage. The shooting spree has seven different crime scenes, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Keith Leary in a press conference.

    The sheriff's deputy was responding to a disturbance call around 2:20 p.m. to a house in the 19500 block of Silver Creek Drive. When the sheriff’s deputy arrived one person was already dead in the home, Leary said. Some time went by before the police station called the officer to do a status check. When they received no answer, police responded to the sheriff’s deputy and found him fatally shot in the head, Skagit County police said.

    Two construction workers were found shot dead at the scene of a nearby home under construction. A fourth fatality was found at another home in the same area, Leary said.

    At some point a customer at a Shell gas station in Alger was also shot in the arm. A clerk at the gas station told KIRO 7 that she was in the cooler when she heard commotion outside the station. The clerk said a man was firing his gun and hit a customer.

    A high-speed pursuit ensued southbound on Interstate 5 near Mount Vernon shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday. Around mile marker 238, a motorist who was pulled over on the shoulder was also shot and killed, Leary said.

    In the same area, a Washington State Patrol trooper was shot in the arm. The trooper was taken to Sedro-Woolley Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

    The pursuit ended when the suspect drove to Mount Vernon precinct of the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office and surrendered, Leary said. A bullet hole was found in the passenger side window of the suspect's truck, reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

    Police said the suspect is known for having mental health issues and that he is on a Mount Vernon watch list. Police said they believe the suspect is responsible for all eight shootings.

    Chopper 7 over the incident showed police and K-9 units combing the area near the motorist fatality for evidence. Police blocked off all southbound traffic on I-5 near the Bow Hill area while police investigated.

    The pursuit reached speeds of 90 miles per hour.

          That is why LE carries, civilians who wish to CC face significant restrictions. Nevertheless, situations like this suck for all involved, both directly and indirectly.

            Unfortunately for those of us who live in the, um, great states of Illinois and Wisconsin, we do not have a lawful right to carry a gun. Until we do, the NIU shooting and Lane Bryant massacre are bound to repeat themselves. Suddenly Indiana is looking like the place to be...

              What's really said is that a story like this hardly makes the news anymore. I heard about this on the radio but I've not even seen it on TV!! They're just talking about Sarah Palin nationally and local news locally.

              30 or even 20 years ago this would've been a headline story but not anymore. How many people have to get killed in a shooting for the media to care??

              At least 15 or 20???
