BOTHELL – A Woodinville man with suspected ties to an outlaw motorcycle group is being sought in connection with a July 30 shooting at a south Snohomish County gravel pit.
Clint C. Fisher, 35, was charged Thursday with first-degree assault with a firearm. He’s being sought on a Snohomish County Superior Court warrant setting his bail at $250,000.
Fisher was riding a motorcycle at a gravel pit in the 1900 block of 228th St. SE in Bothell and apparently was angered when the property’s owners asked him to leave, deputy prosecutor John Adcock said in court papers.
As Fisher was leaving, he lost control of his motorcycle and fell to the ground.
As he got up, Fisher drew a pistol and shot one of the people who was asking him to leave, the bullet passing through the victim’s hand and belly, Adcock said.
The victim, 45, was hospitalized and is expected to survive, the prosecutor said.
Fisher’s identity was discovered after police viewed a surveillance tape made just before the shooting at a convenience store near the gravel pit. Fisher was purchasing beer and wearing the “colors” of the Gypsy Jokers motorcycle gang, Adcock said.
A Seattle police detective who monitors outlaw motorcycle gangs in the area identified Fisher by name when shown the videotape. Witnesses to the shooting all identified Fisher as the gunman when shown his photograph, according to court papers.
Police told prosecutors Fisher appears to have abandoned his home and called in sick at his job. His whereabouts are unknown.
Fisher also is charged with second-degree assault in Kittitas County, and he failed to appear for an Aug. 3 court appearance in that case.
