Officers Arrest Armed Felon After Early Morning Shooting

Officers arrested a 36-year-old felon in Georgetown early Tuesday morning after he opened fire on a car full of people on Beacon Hill.

Around 12:45 am, two men and a woman were in a vehicle stopped at a stoplight on South Columbian Way when a man in a white Ford Escort pulled up alongside them and began staring at the victims.

When the light changed, the victims drove away, but the suspect pulled behind them, turned his headlights off, and began following them.

The victims pulled onto a side street and tried to lose the suspect, who then began shooting at them.

The victims called 911 and drove towards SoDo, where they met with officers near 4th Avenue South  and South Holgate.

Officers then found the 36-year-old suspect parked in a lot at South  Michigan Street  and Corson Avenue  South and arrested him. Police also recovered a revolver from the floor of the suspect’s car.  Officers booked the suspect in the King County Jail for assault, unlawful possession of a firearm, and driving with a suspended license.

No one was injured in the incident.
