NORMANDY PARK — Police have arrested a 23-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a man and assaulting a woman in Normandy Park, south of Seattle.

Normandy Police said in a statement Sunday that Shane Chamberlain was booked into King County Jail on Saturday afternoon on investigation of murder and assault.

Officers responded to reports of an assault and a shooting just before 3 p.m. Saturday. They found one man dead in the home. The woman escaped and sought refuge at a neighbor’s house.

Police declined on Sunday to speculate on the suspect’s motive or release information about his relationship to the victims.
