Domestic Violence Threats Call Ends in Felony Arrest, Three Guns Recovered

North Precinct officers took a man into custody and recovered three handguns following a domestic violence incident Saturday night.

Around 10:45 p.m., multiple units responded to a call where the victim said her boyfriend was armed and made threats to shoot her. While an officer contacted the victim, additional police set up around the residence where the suspect was last seen.

An officer on containment saw a male matching the suspect’s description leave the apartment and enter a nearby vehicle with another female and two children. Police contacted the occupants of the vehicle and took the suspect into custody.

Two semi-automatic pistols and a revolver were recovered from inside the vehicle where the suspect had been seated. Officers checked the serial numbers on the firearms and confirmed one of the guns was reported stolen out of King County.

The 23-year-old suspect was transported to the King County Jail and booked for investigation of domestic violence harassment, possession of a stolen firearm, and unlawful possession of a firearm. All firearms were booked into evidence.
