Kent police ask for more witnesses to gas station shooting

Several weeks after two men were fatally shot at a Kent gas station, police are still looking for additional witnesses to come forward.

Leland Russell Jr., 29, was charged with two counts of murder in connection to the shootings.

He’s accused of killing David Christianson and Carlos Gonzales, both employees of the station at 6331 S. 212th St.

Prosecutors say Russell and another man argued with people at the business Aug. 20, before Russell got his gun from the car and shot both the employees.

Kent police asked Thursday that anyone who may have witnessed something relevant to the investigation before, during or after the shooting call 911, or the Kent police tip line at 253-856-5808.
