Suspect arrested in fatal Lynnwood hit and run

A suspect in last Thursday night’s fatal hit and run in Lynnwood was arrested today.

The 29-year-old man, who was arrested at noon, allegedly hit a man crossing in the 17200 block of Highway 99, according to Sgt. Rod Cohnheim. The victim, 62-year-old Young Koo Kim, later died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The suspect has a significant criminal history, according to a Lynnwood Police Department news release.

Witnesses told police that the driver made a U-turn after striking Kim and drove north. Several tips from the public led police to the vehicle they believe was involved in the hit and run. The car was located at a south Lynnwood residence on Saturday.

Confirmation that the car’s owner lived at the same residence led to his arrest. He has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Lynnwood police are still asking that witnesses call them at 425-670-5600.
