WSP Seeking Witnesses To A Road Rage Shooting On SR 520
King County: At approximately 3:15pm on February 11, 2020, Washington State Patrol (WSP) communications received a 9-1-1 call from an individual that stated that another driver shot at him on EB SR 520.
According to the victim, he was driving a 2000 BMW and the suspect in a 1992 Honda Accord was tailgating him while they were traveling EB SR 520 in Redmond. The victim then changed lanes at which time the suspect vehicle swerved at him and he swerved back. At this point the suspect driver produced a handgun and the victim stated the suspect fired one shot at his vehicle.
The victim provided a description of the vehicle and driver and a short time later Duvall PD called WSP dispatch and advised that they had the suspect vehicle stopped in their city. Troopers transported the victim to that location where he positively identified the suspect driver and vehicle. The suspect was arrested and booked into the King County Jail.
WSP detectives are seeking witnesses that may have been in the area of eastbound SR 520 around the time of this incident and observed these two vehicles and the subsequent shot being fired. Please contact Detective Todd Early at (425) 401-7747 or by email at Todd.Early@wsp.wa.gov.
