Two Federal Way victims, gunman identified

This is a photograph of Dennis Clark who killed his girlfriend, three others in Federal Way Sunday night. He was shot dead by Federal Way police in a shootout in the parking lot where the earlier shootings took place. The photo is from his Facebook page.

Dennis Clark III, pictured in this Facebook photo, shot his girlfriend and three others at a Federal Way apartment complex Sunday night. He was killed a short time later by Federal Way police in a shootout in a parking lot at the apartment complex.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified Justine E. Baez, 24, and Roland L. Scobee, 62, as two of the four victims killed by a gunman Sunday night at a Federal Way apartment complex. The gunman, who was previously identified by a law-enforcement source, was confirmed to be Dennis Clark III by death investigators.

The Medical Examiner had previously identified Ceasar A. Valdovinos, 23, as one of the victims. Clark killed Baez, his girlfriend, in the apartment they shared at the Pinewood Village apartments in Federal Way, police said. Valdovinos and a still unidentified 47-year-old man were fatally shot by Clark in the complex’s parking lot while Scobee was fatally shot in his first-floor apartment after yelling to a neighbor to call 911. Police have said they believe Clark shot the three men to eliminate witnesses to the killing of Baez.

Clark, 27, exchanged gunfire with responding Federal Way officers and was fatally shot.

The 47-year-old man, believed to be a Federal Way resident, has still not been positively identified, according to death investigators. Police had previously said Baez was 25 and that the unidentified man was 46.
