Detectives have recovered one victim’s vehicle after it was found parked on a South Seattle street earlier this week.

Tuesday afternoon, police located an apparently abandoned Mitsubishi Galant on Wabash Avenue and S. Cloverdale Street. Officers quickly realized the car belonged to one of the young men killed in the shooting at 29th Avenue and King Street. Police had been working to locate the victim’s car.

Officers had the car towed to the SPD Evidence facility, where Crime Scene Investigators processed the vehicle.

Detectives are investigating how the car ended up in South Seattle, and are still working to identify additional suspects.
