Road rage in West Seattle, suspect arrested

On July 19th, just after 4:30 PM, a 29 year old male suspect was involved in a traffic dispute with another driver.  Both vehicles had just exited the West Seattle Bridge onto Delridge.  The suspect raised a semi-auto handgun and pointed it at the victim.  The victim fled and called 911.  Officers responded but the suspect vehicle had left the area.

Just before 6:00 PM, an officer from the South West Precinct located the suspect vehicle, a black 1997 Mercedes Benz,  at a gas station in the 5400 Block of Delridge Way SW, occupied by two males and a female.  The occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody without incident.  The suspect admitted to officers that there was a handgun in the driver’s door compartment and gave officers consent to search the vehicle.  Officers recovered the 9mm pistol,  a loaded magazine, and a box of ammunition.

The 29 year old suspect was arrested and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Harassment. The other occupants were identified and released.
