King County medical examiners have identified the 23-year-old man who was fatally shot after he was uncooperative with Federal Way police on Dec. 31.
Malik Williams, of Federal Way, died of multiple gunshot wounds during the incident that injured two officers. His manner of death was ruled a homicide.
Officers responded to a disturbance call at an apartment complex in the 30800 block of 14th Ave. S. around 12:15 a.m. on Dec. 31. Williams and a female were arguing in the parking lot apartment complex while sitting in a vehicle.
Two police officers called for backup after they encountered Williams, who police said was uncooperative. During the encounter, an officer was shot and the officers returned fire, killing Williams.
One officer sustained a gunshot wound to his chest and another to the arm. Another officer was shot in the leg.
Seven officers involved in the shooting were placed on administrative leave pending the results of an independent investigation by the Valley Investigative Team.
