Kent Police seek public's help to identify Metro bus shooting suspect
Kent Police released a photograph Tuesday of a man they believe to be associated with the April 20 shooting on a Metro bus in Kent.
Police were called to the 20600 block of 108th Avenue Southeast at about 6 p.m. April 20 after gunshots were fired aboard the bus. Officers found a 24-year-old SeaTac man critically injured and the assailant gone.
Investigators found the distinctive coat worn by the suspect a short time after the shooting. Working from witness accounts, detectives now have surveillance photos that shows the same suspect at a Tukwila transit station on April 18, two days before the shooting.
Police believe that the suspect is a frequent bus and light rail passenger who often wears similar clothing. For that reason, police hope that he will be recognized by other commuters who use public transit.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of this man is asked to call the Kent Police at 253-856-5808.
