   WOODINVILLE, Wash. (AP) -- King County Sheriff Steve Strachan says he's grateful a deputy did not injure a man who waved a gun made of Lego toy building bricks.


   The deputy had responded to a report of a man waving a gun at passing cars Thursday in Woodinville. The man raised what appeared to be a gun at the deputy who fired several shots.


   The suspect dropped to the ground unhurt. Deputies discovered the gun was a toy and the man was a resident of a nearby home for developmentally disabled adults.
