Inquest ordered into fatal shooting by Tukwila police

An inquest was ordered today into a fatal shooting by Tukwila police at a grocery store on Dec. 7.

An employee of the Cash and Carry store in the 200 block of Andover Park East called 911 to report that a masked man armed with a handgun was inside attempting to rob the store. Police surrounded the store and say an armed man came out and exchanged gunfire with officers.

The man, identified as D’Angelo Davis, died at the scene.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg recommended the inquest after his office reviewed materials from the Federal Way Police Department, which conducted the investigation, according to a news release

Inquests are fact-finding hearings conducted before a six-member jury convened  to determine the causes and circumstances of any death involving a member of a law enforcement agency within King County while in the performance of his or her duties.
