We just received an update on what appears to be a domestic-related shooting outside of McCleary on Wednesday evening from the Grays Harbor County Sheriffs Office.  Here is what Undersheriff Brad Johansson had to say. 

On 11-27-19 at approximately 9:25 PM the Sheriffs Office responded to a shooting that occurred in the 400 boxes of Elma-Hicklin Road West.

The reporting party a 60-year-old McCleary man advised that a 47-year-old male broke into the residence armed with a knife and a confrontation and struggle ensued.  A 36-year-old female also at the residence who was also present retrieved a firearm and shot the suspect killing him.
