Man fatally shot by Kitsap County deputy identified

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — The man fatally shot by a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy was identified as 36-year-old David James Pruitte of Poulsbo. Deputies were called Tuesday night about a man sitting on the exterior of the Highway 16 overpass, dangling his legs. Bremerton police Lt. Aaron Elton said shortly after deputies arrived at the overpass, dispatchers received a report of a shooting. “At this point the specific details as to what happened just prior to the shooting are unknown,” Elton said. One deputy has been placed on administrative leave following the shooting. Scott Wilson, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, declined to comment.
