2 men suspected in South Seattle shoot-out arrested
Police have arrested two suspects in the attempted robbery of a marijuana seller at a South Seattle home last week.
Detectives are still searching for a third suspect involved in the robbery, which turned into a shoot-out with one of the men in the house, according to the Seattle Police Department.
On the night of Nov. 29, the suspects came to the home near 23rd Avenue South and South College Street and asked to buy marijuana from a 19-year-old man inside. Once they were admitted, one of the suspects punched the 19-year-old, pulled out a handgun and fired one round, police say.
When he heard the commotion, a 24-year-old man at the home ran out the back with a shotgun and ended up in a shootout with the suspects. Police say at least six rounds were fired at the 24-year-old, who was shot in the thigh during the attack.
Detectives arrested the first suspect, a 25-year-old, in Auburn on Dec. 3. A 28-year-old suspect was found two days later in Renton through a coordinated effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigations and SPD’s robbery, gang and SWAT units.
Both men are in King County jail for investigation of robbery.
