RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say they arrested a 14-year-old boy in the fatal shooting of a 54-year-old man in Renton, Washington.
Officers were called out to the parking lot of a grocery store just before 5:45 p.m. Wednesday and found the victim lying on a sidewalk. The Seattle Times reports the man had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene.
Renton police said investigators learned the alleged shooter was a passenger in a black SUV that had fled the scene. The suspect vehicle was located at a nearby apartment complex and authorities served a search warrant Thursday evening at a unit in the complex.
The suspect was arrested at the apartment.
The teen has been booked into King County Juvenile Detention, and will face charges for both this shooting and another slaying in Renton late in 2021, Renton police said but did not immediately give details about the 2021 incident.
Police said they do not know a motive for this week’s shooting .
