Elderly man arrested in Pioneer Square shelter shooting released

An 82-year-old man arrested in the shooting of a younger man inside Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission on Wednesday has been released from police custody.

Roger Mize was arrested after Darren “Jerome” Nelson, 45 was shot twice, according to police.

“He was brought to the homicide office and released pending further investigation,” said police spokesman Mark Jamieson.

Police say Mize told them Nelson tried to assault and rob him.

Mize has no criminal history, according to a law-enforcement source.

Nelson remains in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said this morning.
