ISSAQUAH, Wash. (AP) -- A man was coaxed out of his home by police
after he pulled a gun and shot his personal computer, apparently in

"We don't know if it wouldn't boot up or what," Sgt. Keith Moon said

The computer, in a home office on the second floor of the townhouse,
had four bullet holes in the hard drive and one in the monitor.

One bullet struck a filing cabinet, while another made it through a
wall and into a neighboring unit. No one was hurt.

Police evacuated the complex, contacted the 43-year-old man by telephone and
got him to come out. He was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
