Police grabbed a tactical shield and engaged in some fun as a major winter storm blanketed parts of Washington state.

Members of the Duvall Police Department posted a Facebook video on Monday of officers responding to a report of suspicious characters in a park.

Police said a group of "local hostiles" were armed with "improvised projectiles made out of fluffy snow".

Officers proclaimed there would be "no mercy" as they advanced behind the shield, but they were no match for a group of youngsters who hurled snowballs at them.

"Officers put up a valent effort, but were immediately out-gunned and numbers were just not on their side."

The officers retreated, but one got left behind to feel the full barrage.
