Friday, June 22, 2018

the 1500 block of N 146th St near Goodwill
A teenaged male arrested by Seattle Police on another charge was identified as the same suspect who is believed to have killed a 43 year old victim in  Shoreline. (see previous story)  

On June 16, 2018 a 43 year old male was shot and killed in his vehicle on N 146th in Shoreline. The suspect escaped before Police arrived.

A cell phone and shell casings were located in the vehicle. Nine hours after the victim was killed, Seattle Police arrested a 17 year old male on an unrelated charge of possession of a firearm.

Testing confirmed that the firearm the 17 year old suspect was in possession of was the same firearm that fired the shell casings that were found in the victim’s vehicle nine hours earlier.

Police searched both cell phones and confirmed that the suspect and victim had called each other multiple times the days leading up to the murder, as well of the day of the murder.

After the murder, the phone calls from the suspect to the victim stopped. Also seen on surveillance video, just after the murder, a male is seen running from the victim’s car with a large black backpack which he didn’t have prior to entering the victim’s vehicle.

Cell phone communications in the hours before the homicide show the victim anticipated having a lot of money later that day. A photo found on the suspect's cell phone just 44 minutes after the murder was that of the suspect with a large amount of narcotics.

The suspect was booked for Murder 1, Robbery 1 and unlawful Possession of a firearm.
