HOQUIAM, Wash. —

A Hoquiam police officer was shot and wounded Wednesday morning while attempting to arrest a man.

Chief Criminal Deputy Steve Shumate tells KXRO the officer was shot in the side and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a hospital.

Officers returned fire. It's unknown if the suspect was hit. He's inside.

Police have surrounded the home while they attempt to negotiate.

Police say a 53-year-old woman and 49-year-old-man were wanted on arrest warrants. Officers arrested the woman Tuesday but the man was away. As they returned Wednesday, police say the man produced a firearm and shot at the officers.

Traffic has been blocked in the area during the standoff.
