DV Homicide: Suspect in Custody

On 8/23/09, at 2:20 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call in the 9000 block of 39 av s., where a male caller (29-yrs-old) said he had shot his father(50-year-male).  Officers arrived and called for occupants of the home to come outside and the suspect and a female did so.  The female was the wife of the victim and the male was the suspect (son of the victim).  The suspect appeared high on PCP and later told officers that he had smoked PCP, 45 minutes before the shooting.  Officers entered the home and found the victim lying on the floor next to the front door, unconscious and unresponsive.  Seattle Fire Department (SFD) was called to the scene.

SFD arrived and gave aid to the victim, but he had succumbed to his injuries (multiple gun shots to his upper torso).  The suspect was taken to HMC, because he was having psychotic episodes. Upon release he will be booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Homicide.

CSI and Homicide processed the scene.
