Gang Detectives Arrest Suspect In Weekend Shooting At 2nd and Pike

Gang detectives have arrested a Central District gang member for shooting a man on a downtown street early Saturday morning.

Around 3:15 am on September 15th, the 25-year-old suspect got into an argument with another man near 2nd Avenue and Pike Street. When the other man punched and shattered the suspect’s car window, the suspect pulled out a pistol, shot the man in the abdomen, and drove off.

Police arrested the 25-year-old gangster Tuesday morning at a home in Renton and impounded his car.

He’s currently being held at the King County Jail for assault and unlawful possession of a firearm.
