Updated information on 15th/East Union homicide

A 26 year old male has been interviewed by Homicide detectives and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Homicide.  The victim is a 58-year old male.  The weapon used in this attack was a hatchet, instead of a pick axe described by many of the witnesses.  That tool has been recovered.  The Homicide Unit is continuing to investigate this crime.

It is believed that the suspect and the victim did not know each other.  This appears to have been a stranger type attack.
