FOLLOWUP: Investigators asking for help in solving White Center murder

Update just in on the Sunday morning murder, from King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West:

Detectives said a birthday party was being held at a bar in the 9800 block of 16 Ave SW Saturday night into Sunday morning. About 1:30 am a fight broke out between two groups of women inside the bar. The fight ended up outside and numerous people were either watching or participating in the disturbance.

After the altercation was over, the victim, a 31-year-old Seattle man, walked across the street with a woman who had been in the altercation. He stood with a group of people for moments before a man in the group pulled a gun and shot him in the head, killing him. The suspect then ran southbound, got into a vehicle and drove off.

Detectives believe the suspect vehicle is a white, 99-01 BMW station wagon. The suspect is described as a black male, and was last seen wearing a dark colored hoodie.

Anyone with information or who may have taken cell phone video before, during or after the shooting is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311. Additionally anyone who may have been driving in the area or picked someone up from the area is asked to call. You may also be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 and remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477)

  1. Just Saying Says:

    Two days later and a name of the deceased still isn’t available.This is just a another murder where the community seems to be more concerned with their own safety and crime statistics but in actuality a young man lost his life and void has been left unfulfilled and for what a punk who feels less than man so he resorts to using a deadly weapon instead of taking a ass whooping or putting up a fight.This is what concerns me.People losing their loved ones on the strength of what media has fed society at an alarming rate violence and gun play is real and now two lives are lost.1000 dollar reward is all the value they put this for.Measley chump change.SMFH.THE GOVERNMENT ALONG WITH CITY AND STATE OFFICIALS ARE THE BIGGEST SUSPECTS IN TODAY’S WORLD WITH EVERYTHING THEY PUSH ONTO A SOCIETY THAT CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH BEFORE WE START TO PUSH BACK.AMERICA IT’S TIME TO WAKE UP AND TAKE CIVILIZATION AND OUR HUMAN RIGHTS BACK.QUIT GIVING ENEMY 1 SO MUCH POWER AND AUTHORITY TO MANIPULATE OUR STATE OF EXISTENCE.

  2. Names are released to the media via the Medical Examiner’s daily recorded hotline. I have checked it the past two days and will check it again this afternoon (usually updated at 3 pm). While some people have posted a name in Facebook comments on the page we keep for WSB, we don’t publish names unless we have an official update, and we have none so far. I added the nickname “Bookie” in our first story as it was prominent on one of the posters we photographed during the early going of the vigil on Sunday night.
