LYNNWOOD — Two teen boys who died in a drive-by shooting at Spruce Park last week in Lynnwood have been identified.
Jesus Sanchez Camunas Jr., 16, of Bothell, and Tidus K. Linville-Goodwin, 15, of Lynnwood, suffered gunshot wounds in the park at 16834 36th Ave W, shortly after 9 p.m. July 14. The two teens were transferred to local hospitals where they died from their injuries.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the cause of death was gunshot wounds and the manner was homicide.
On Monday, police identified and impounded a distinctive SUV believed to be associated with the gunfire. It is a 1996 Chevy Tahoe with a black front fender and hood and a white body. It has Washington license plate CBP4384.
Detectives are requesting information regarding the Tahoe or who was driving it on July 14. Authorities are also asking businesses in the area to review any video they may have showing the Tahoe.
No arrests had been made in the case as of Wednesday.
“My heart goes out to these young people’s families,” Mayor Christine Frizzell said in a written statement. “The recent incidents of shootings in and near our city are cause for great concern and we take these events extremely seriously.”
She said the city is moving to hire more police officers, and to work with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Violent Offenders Task Force to address a recent rise in violent crimes.
“We are committed to ensuring that Lynnwood’s Parks and our neighborhoods are a safe and welcoming place for all people to enjoy, and we are working hard to address these issues now and into the future,” she said.
