4 arrested, 2 sought in Kent car show shootout in July

SEATTLE — Four people have been arrested and two others are being sought in a July shootout at a car show in Kent that left a dozen people wounded.

Prosecutors say all of those charged Thursday in King County Superior Court are members of the Playboy-Surenos street gang.

The gunfire erupted during a low-rider car show in a parking lot on July 23. Fearful crowd members and merchants took cover or fled; none of the injuries was life-threatening.

The four in custody are Martin McSmith, who faces assault charges; James Lopez Jr., a juvenile charged as an adult with drive-by shooting; and brothers Patrick and Shea Auble, who are accused of rendering criminal assistance.

Arrest warrants have been issued for Nicholas Moreno and Ingacio Vazquez-Trevino.

It was not clear if any of the defendants had obtained lawyers.

A 13th person was injured in a shooting later that night which appeared to be an act of retaliation.
