Reports: 17-year-old male ID’d as suspect in Greenwood homicide

Seattle Times news partner KING 5 is reporting that police have identified a 17-year-old male as one of three suspects in the slaying of a man in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood on Sunday night. The youth is a student at Ballard High School, KING 5 reports.

Officers served a search warrant at a house in Greenwood Friday afternoon in connection with the case.

David L. Peterson, 54, was pronounced dead in his parked car at North 85th Street and First Avenue Northwest after he called 911 just before 9 p.m., Sunday, saying he’d been robbed at gunpoint, according to the Seattle Police Department. He had been shot once.

Three suspects were seen running from the area, police said.

Police spokesman Jeff Kappel said in a phone recording, left for the media after his office closed at 8 p.m., that the department did not have any new information about the “active and ongoing homicide investigation.”

“If we do make an arrest, we will proactively put that information out,” he said in the recording.
