DES MOINES, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a wanted suspect was shot and critically wounded Wednesday by Seattle police officers outside at a shopping center in Des Moines, Washington.

KOMO reports the shooting happened just after 3 p.m. The unidentified person was taken for treatment to Harborview Medical Center, where they were listed in critical condition.

The officers apparently saw a wanted person at the center and tried to take them into custody. It was not immediately clear what the suspect was wanted for.

No other injuries were reported and there were no outstanding suspects, according to a Des Moines police spokesman, who referred inquiries about the matter to the U.S. Marshal’s office.
