Vancouver police officer fires weapon during burglary call

A Vancouver police officer fired their weapon while responding to a burglary early Sunday morning in the Meadow Homes neighborhood.

Vancouver police were dispatched at 12:06 a.m. to a commercial alarm at 6714 N.E. 18th St. Responding officers found evidence of a burglary, and a male was seen inside the building, according to a police news release.

The suspect exited the building in a vehicle while officers were setting up containment around the building. An officer fired a shot, the news release said. The officer was not identified, and the news release did not indicate whether anyone was injured.
