Suspect identified in teen’s fatal shooting in Shoreline

King County sheriff’s investigators have identified a suspect in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old Lake Forest Park girl in Shoreline early Wednesday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the name of the suspect to avoid compromising the investigation, according to a news release from Sgt. Rodney Chinnick.

“It appears that jealousy played a role in the argument that led to this shooting,”  the news release said. “The shooting wasn’t a random act or part of a gang conflict. ”

Tiana  Montgomery and Darrold  Devaughn Edwards, 18, were shot shortly after midnight Wednesday in the parking lot of the Maplewood Court apartments in the 300 block of Northwest Richmond Beach Road Drive in Shoreline. The teens were “in or around their vehicle” when the gunfire erupted..

Montgomery, a Shorecrest High School student, died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Edwards is a senior at Shorewood High School. He is expected to survive his wounds.

We’ll update this post as soon as the Sheriff’s Office releases more information.
