The Bothell, Washington, police officer who was fatally shot late Monday has been identified as Jonathan Shoop, according to authorities.

Shoop had been with the Bothell Police Department for a little over a year. Before that, he served with the US Coast Guard, said a statement on the department's verified Twitter account.

A suspect was taken into custody after hiding on a rooftop near the scene of the shooting, police said.

Two officers were shot in the incident which began with Bothell police attempting to make a traffic stop, according to Aaron Snell with the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team.

CNN affiliate KOMO reported that the suspect fled from the officers before striking a man on a scooter and crashing his vehicle. Gunfire was exchanged and the suspect fled on foot, KOMO reported.

"As other officers arrived to assist, unfortunately they found that one officer was deceased and another was seriously injured," Snell said.

The wounded officer was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment, Snell said. Bothell is about 16 miles northeast of Seattle.

The officer was treated and released Tuesday morning while the person riding the scooter remains hospitalized in satisfactory condition, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg told KOMO.
