Seattle police are looking for three suspects — two men and a woman — in connection with the fatal shooting of a man in a Greenwood parking lot on Sunday night.
The victim, who was identified by a law-enforcement source as David L. Peterson, 54, was found in his parked car at North 85th Street and First Avenue Northwest after he called 911 for help and said he’d been robbed, according to police. Police said he was shot once.
Peterson was pronounced dead at the scene by Seattle Fire Department medics.
Several people in the area also called police after hearing a gunshot shortly before 9 p.m., police said.
The suspects were seen running from the area. One was described by witnesses as a black man, 20 to 30 years old, 5 foot 10, with a thin build. He was wearing a North Face jacket.
The other man was also black and shorter than the first, police said. The woman with the two men was white, police said.
Investigators believe the suspects may have committed other robberies in the area prior to the shooting, police said.
Anyone with information on the shooting or the suspects is asked to call the Seattle police tip line at 233-5000. Anonymous tips are welcome.
The victim was the husband of Kimberly Peterson, who has worked as a database coordinator in the Civil Division of the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for a little more than two years, a spokesman for Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg confirmed on Monday.
The spokesman, Dan Donohoe, said, “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news.”
