Federal Way police are treating Wednesday’s suspicious death as a homicide after discovering the victim’s vehicle on fire Thursday night.
Identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday, victim Andre M. Aber Williams, 27, was found deceased from a gunshot wound to the head in the parking lot of Club Palisades apartments at 2 a.m. on Wednesday.
An apartment security guard found the man and called 911.
Because of a lack of evidence at the scene, Schrock said detectives believe Williams was killed at a different location and brought to the parking lot.
That different location may have been the victim’s vehicle.
Police learned Williams’ vehicle was reported missing and then stolen before it was found up in flames at 9:15 p.m. Thursday. The vehicle was located in the 32300 block of Hoyt Road Southwest.
Schrock said the vehicle was towed to a secure location and will be processed as evidence.
