A 31-year-old Gorst man appears to have been shot to death in self-defense, according to a detective with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

On Sept. 6, shortly after 4 p.m. officers responded to reports of a man suffering from a gunshot wound on the 3900 block of Thorson Road West in Gorst. A 911 call reported a dispute involving a knife and a subject who had been shot, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. A neighbor on scene reported hearing four or five shots close together followed by sirens from first responders. At the scene, responders found Cody Tyler Brooks deceased.

The detective said two individuals were detained and interviewed by law enforcement, but no arrests were made following the incident.

“During the initial response by deputies and detectives, as well as the subsequent investigative steps, information suggests that the circumstances of this shooting are consistent with self-defense,” the detective said. “The investigation is ongoing, and detectives continue to gather information and facts relevant to the case. As with all cases where deadly force is used, it will be referred to the prosecutor’s office for a review. Preliminary information did not warrant an arrest after the initial response by law enforcement.”
