Inquest ordered into fatal shooting by police at Twilight Exit

King County Executive Dow Constantine has ordered an inquest into the fatal shooting by Seattle police at a Central Area tavern.

Police say James Anderson, 32, was killed by police Jan. 27 at the Twilight Exit, 2514 East Cherry St., after he shot and wounded two people.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg recommended the inquest after his office reviewed materials from the Seattle Police Department, which investigated the officer-involved shooting.

Inquests are fact-finding hearings conducted before a six-member jury to determine the causes and circumstances of  deaths involving a member of any law enforcement agency in King County. At the conclusion, jurors answer questions to determine significant factual issues.

Satterberg’s office reviews the findings to determine whether criminal charges are warranted.

King County’s most recent inquest was last week when a jury weighed the facts surrounding a man who died last year after he was arrested by Tukwila police.
