Homicide suspect in custody

Earlier in the day on July 22nd the 18-year-old male victim and the 19-year-old male suspect had some sort of dispute at a park along Lake Washington.  Later that day at approximately 8:33 p.m. the victim was driving with friends when they passed by the suspect’s house.  The suspect came down to the street armed with a rifle and fired one shot into the victim’s vehicle, killing the victim. The suspect fled into his house in the 700 block of  32nd Avenue South.

When officers arrived the suspect’s mother told officers he was gone, but would not cooperate.  Fearing the suspect was still in the house, officers surrounded the residence and the SWAT team was called to the scene.  After repeated attempts to contact the suspect were unsuccessful, the SWAT team made entry and determined the suspect was not in the house. 

 Homicide and CSI Detectives responded to the scene. Officers and detectives canvassed the neighborhood and interviewed witnesses.


On July 23rd at approximately 6:25 a.m. officers received a tip that the suspect was at a house in West Seattle near Delridge Way SW and SW Andover Street. Officers responded to the area and arrested the suspect without incident.
