Officers Track Down Suspect In September South Park Shooting

Detectives and Anti-Crime Team arrested a 21-year-old man Thursday afternoon in connection with a September shooting in the South Park neighborhood.

Police have been searching for the suspect since September 28th when he opened fire on another man near 12th Avenue and S. Trenton Street, leaving the victim with life-threatening injuries.

Today, Southwest Precinct officers located the man near White Center and, with the assistance of King County Deputies, arrested the suspected gunman. Officers also seized the suspect’s vehicle for detectives, who are currently interviewing the suspect at SPD Headquarters.

Detectives plan to book the suspect into the King County Jail for a weapons violation as they continue to investigate the case.
