#2022-057499/Southwest Precinct/Second Watch:

On 03-07-2022 at 1421 hours, officers responded to 8 Ave SW / SW Cambridge St for a report of a road rage incident involving the suspect pointing a firearm at the victim. Officers arrived and contacted the victim who stated she had pulled out of a senior living facility where she works and entered westbound Olson Pl SW. Upon entering the roadway, the suspect vehicle began aggressively tailgating her vehicle and would switch lanes when she did. When the two vehicles arrived at a stop light at 8 Ave SW / SW Roxbury St, the suspect stopped next to the victim’s vehicle, drew a semi-auto handgun and pointed it at the victim. The victim was alarmed by the suspect’s actions and asked why the suspect was pointing a gun at her, which he replied in an unpleasant manner for her to “shut the f*** up.” He then continued eastbound, and the victim pulled over and called 911. After investigating, the officers located and contacted the suspect, and he was interviewed. The suspect was subsequently arrested and booked into King County Jail for Unlawful Use of Weapons to Intimidate Another. The weapon was collected and entered as evidence.
