Terrace police make arrest in July drive-by shooting

Police allege that video footage from a business shows the suspect taking part in a gun battle.

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Police have made an arrest in connection with a July gun battle in Mountlake Terrace.

Around 8:45 p.m. July 26, police were called to the 22100 block of 64th Avenue W. after reports of an exchange of gunfire involving “multiple subjects,” according to court papers. The incident took place in what police described as a populated area. It also was the evening of the Tour de Terrace parade, a community-wide celebration.

The people involved were gone by the time police arrived. Police found shell casings from multiple caliber weapons as well as broken auto glass.

Witnesses reported seeing a black Jeep and recorded the license plate number. It led to a home where police found the suspect and two other people. The suspect, 21, declined to make a statement and police didn’t have enough evidence at the time to make an arrest.

Police obtained a search warrant for the Jeep and found a loaded magazine with .380-caliber bullets, which matched some of the casings found at the shooting scene.

They also were able to watch surveillance footage from a business near where the shootings took place. Police allege that the video images show the suspect, along with another person, firing handguns at a vehicle, before getting into the Jeep and driving away.

Detectives arrested the Seattle man on Wednesday for investigation of drive-by shooting and unlawful possession of a firearm. He has a previous felony conviction for robbery. He also was arrested on a warrant alleging he was driving with a suspended license.
