Deputy Armeni was shot and killed when he and his partner attempted to serve committal papers to a man in a rural part of King County. As the deputies entered the living room the man ran out of his room and opened fire, fatally wounding Deputy Armeni. The man then ran outside where he shot and wounded another deputy.

The 27-year-old suspect was judged insane and committed in a mental institution.

Spent a lot of time fishing from Armeni and the ramp under First South bridge. When my parents divorced in the 60's my mom lived across the street from Armeni. Was a lot of years later that I went to work at KCSO. Retired from there in 2003. I was lucky. He and so many others were not. We all need to remember EVERYONE that protects us from evil.
