Seattle Police say they have made an arrest in a double shooting last month that left a 15-year old boy critically injured.
A 29-year old man was also shot in the back in the incident that occurred near the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and South Fisher Place.
According to Seattle Police Department spokesman Jeff Kappel, a 27-year old male suspect was arrested on Tuesday in the City of Normandy Park.
“With the assistance of Normandy Park police officers, SPD Gang detectives placed the suspect under surveillance,” he wrote. “As the suspect was getting into a parked car, Gang detectives moved in and placed him under arrest.”
He added that detectives recovered a white Chevy Tahoe at the scene of the arrest that is believed to be the vehicle the suspect fired from on the day of the shooting.
The Tahoe was impounded and the suspect was interviewed by SPD Gang detectives and subsequently booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault (Felony Assault with a firearm).
