A man wanted in connection with a Federal Way shooting and kidnapping was arrested Wednesday night near a Kent horse barn, Federal Way police said Thursday.
Kent police arrested Ivan Alfonso Sosa Aquinaga, 23, about 10:30 p.m. after an anonymous tip to Federal Way police led officers to the southeast Kent barn, Federal Way police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock wrote in an email Thursday.
As police set up a perimeter around the barn, Sosa took off running, Schrock wrote. A Kent police dog chased him down and he was arrested.
Sosa was taken to Valley Medical Center with injuries from the police dog and has not yet been booked into jail, Schrock said.

When arrested, Sosa had a handgun police believed he used to shoot a 50-year-old man early Sunday in the 1900 block of Southwest Campus Drive, Schrock wrote.
The man, the father of his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries. He now is expected to survive.
Schrock said the ex-boyfriend was Sosa’s intended target.
Police also believe Sosa kidnapped his girlfriend and made her tell him where her ex-boyfriend lived, then drove her across the Cascades and released her in Sunnyside in Yakima County.
