PORT ANGELES — One man is dead and another is in custody after an apparent shooting in Port Angeles, city police said tonight.
Gary Borneman, 39, of Port Angeles, was in police custody at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after allegedly shooting a man he knew on the 100 block of West 11th Street, Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith said.
Smith did not identify the dead man.
Dispatchers received a 9-1-1 call from a woman at the residence asking for help at 7:10 p.m. Police determined that the woman had been a kidnapped and had escaped, Smith said.
“Her voice was real faint,” Smith told the Peninsula Daily News at the crime scene.
An armed Borneman was found outside the residence and arrested, Smith said.
“They had enough facts to determine that he’s responsible for why they got the 9-1-1 call,” Smith said.
The body of the man was found inside the residence.
“We don’t have any unaccounted for people that we know of,” Smith said.
“Everybody involved here knew each other, so we don’t have a ‘stranger crime.’”
Borneman was transferred from Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles to Harborview with “pretty significant trauma to his hand and maybe some other injuries,” Smith said.
City police and a State Patrol evidence recovery team will comb the crime scene Wednesday.
“We’re going to be here for the next 12 to 18 hours,” Smith said.
A neighbor who did not want to be identified said she heard commotion coming from the house where the shooting occurred, followed by a swarm of police activity.
