3rd suspect in attack on WSU professor surrenders
A third suspect in the attack on a Washington State University professor surrendered to police this morning.
Pullman police say the 22-year-old Everett man was taken into custody at 2:20 a.m. and booked for investigation of first-degree assault, according to Times news partner KING-TV. Investigators are still looking for a 22-year-old Mukilteo man in connection with the attack on David Warner.
Warner’s condition has been upgraded from critical to serious at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. Police say he suffered severe head injuries after he tried to break up a fight on March 30.
Police identified the suspects through surveillance footage taken by cameras installed in February through a federal grant.
On Thursday, a judge ordered another suspect, a 23-year-old WSU student, released on his own recognizance. The suspect spent a night in jail after he was arrested Wednesday for investigation of first-degree assault.
Police also arrested a young woman accused of rendering criminal assistance.
