Suspect arrested in Covington shooting

A 26-year-old man was arrested late Sunday night in connection with a fatal shooting in Covington Sunday afternoon.

The King County Sheriff’s Office said the victim, a 48-year-old man, was fatally shot in the head. The 26-year-old arrested in connection with the crime was an acquaintance, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West.

The victim was found in a trailer parked behind a house in the 26800 block of 172nd Place Southeast, she said.

Officers initially detained four or five people at the scene while they were investigating.

They were called to the trailer around 5:30 p.m., West said, and the man was dead when they arrived.
