UPDATE: Sacramento Warrant Triggered Hoquiam Shooting

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) - Authorities in Hoquiam are still investigating the fatal police shooting of a man as his house burned at the end of a 20-hour standoff.
    
The Grays Harbor County coroner has not confirmed the man's name but the incident began when police went to the home to arrest a couple on a warrant out of Sacramento accusing them of real estate fraud in 2004.
    
Undersheriff Dave Pimentel says 53-year-old Nina Marlowe, who was arrested Tuesday, is in jail, awaiting extradition.
    
Officers returned to the home Wednesday to arrest Rick Marlowe, also known as Ray Mahailovich.
    
Police say he shot and wounded a sergeant and retreated into the home, starting the standoff. He was shot Thursday as he left the burning house, refusing to drop his gun.
