Federal Way HEADLINES
The bicyclist fatally injured near the Seattle waterfront Wednesday was a father of two and a skilled rider who had pedaled countless 50- and 100-mile days.
Authorities today released the names of eight Federal Way police officers who shot at a man accused of killing four people at an apartment complex.
The King County Medical Examiners Office on Wednesday identified four of the people fatally shot Sunday night at a Federal Way apartment complex. Officials said they were still working to identify the last victim.
A Federal Way man charged with raping his wife last year, prompting a brief standoff with police, was found not guilty by a jury earlier this month, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office.
A Federal Way man who fatally shot four people before being killed by police might have started the rampage out of anger at his girlfriend for breaking up with him, family and friends of the woman said Tuesday.
The girlfriend died first, shot in the head during an argument. Next came two men in the parking lot of the Federal Way apartment complex, one of whom was shot in the back as he tried to run away. The gunman then burst into the apartment of a disabled veteran who had urged neighbors to call 911, killing him with a shotgun.
UPDATE, 12:10 P.M.: According to Federal Way Police, one shooter is believed to have killed the other four at the apartment complex on Sunday night. The 28-year-old suspect lived at the complex with his 25-year-old girlfriend.
In about 10 minutes, five people were dead, making Sunday night's rampage at a Federal Way apartment complex the largest loss of life in a single incident in the citys 23-year history.
An Auburn man who killed his ex-girlfriend’s boyfriend two years ago was sentenced Thursday to 311/2 years in prison.
UPDATE as of 10:32 a.m.: Police said an 18-year-old man threatened a pedestrian with a gun this morning, prompting lockdowns at three nearby Federal Way schools.
