Kent Police seek help to find man in connection with West Hill shooting
Kent Police are seeking the public's help to find a 27-year-old Seattle man wanted in a connection with a drive-by shooting early Sunday morning on the West Hill.
Detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Aliver Coria Sanchez, according to a Kent Police media release. Sanchez has been identified as the gunman reportedly responsible for shooting and injuring a 26-year-old Federal Way man. Sanchez is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 150 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.
Witnesses report that Sanchez allegedly had been involved in a physical altercation with the man while at a Federal Way nightclub late Saturday night. Sanchez followed the man from the club to the 23400 block of 30th Avenue South where he opened fire from his vehicle, striking the victim once in the leg.
Paramedics transported the injured man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Detectives are also looking for the vehicle Sanchez reportedly used during the shooting. It is a black 1996 Nissan Maxima 4-door sedan with Washington vehicle license AHZ1979.
Sanchez may be located in the South Seattle area, or may have fled to the Yakima region.
