Police arrest two, seek a third suspect in Sunday's deadly 7-Eleven shooting

Federal Way police have arrested two Federal Way residents in connection to Sunday's deadly shooting at the 7-Eleven.

The males, ages 19 and 21 are believed to have been occupants of the 2002 Honda seen fleeing the scene of the shooting, in the 31200 block of 1st Avenue South. A 32-year-old victim was shot in the neck following a verbal altercation with three males. He died from his injuries.

The two arrested were booked for investigation of second-degree murder. Charges are pending. Police are seeking a third suspect. He is described as an 18-year-old Hispanic male measuring 5-feet 5-inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. The Mirror is not naming the man because he is a juvenile and charges have not been filed against him.

Police believe he is a resident of Pomona, Calif. and has gang ties. He is being considered armed and dangerous. Detectives encourage anyone who has any information regarding this incident or person of interest to call 911 or contact Detective Brigit Clary at (206) 261-8600 immediately.
