Authorities arrested Saturday a suspect who allegedly shot a female officer, stabbed a judge and fled a Washington state courthouse, said Undersheriff Rick Scott with the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Department.
Steven D. Kravetz, 34, was arrested at his mother's home in Olympia without incident, Scott said. The mother called authorities to tell them where he was after hearing media reports about the incident, he said.
Authorities also recovered a gun taken from the officer during the confrontation, Scott said.
Scott said the man gave his name as Michael Thomas when the officer approached him shortly after noon Friday inside the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano. Authorities, however, later identified the suspect Kravetz on a poster seeking the public's help in finding him Saturday.
The poster said Kravetz could be with Roberta Dougherty, whom CNN affiliates in the Seattle area identified as Kravetz's mother.FULL STORY
