Update: Leschi murder suspect arrested in West Seattle

We reported earlier this morning that a man wanted for a deadly shooting in Leschi last night had a West Seattle link. Police confirm they arrested him here this morning. The update’s at the end of this SPDBlotter report; he was arrested at a home near Delridge/Andover. ADDED 8:04 AM: Thanks to Steven for sending the photo above, taken by Rose Feliciano, showing a vehicle linked to the case being towed away. (It matches the description of the one mentioned in our early-early-morning report – “tan” minivan.) He says the arrest happened “without incident … no sirens, no confrontation …” and the only clue that something big had just happened was the appearance of one TV news crew (KIRO).

    I was wondering what that heli was doing buzzing the neighborhood at 6:30 this morning…

    It was the KIRO chopper – saw an aerial in their video around 8 am.

    we need to be famous for something other than buzzing helis.

    We’ve covered many a happy story in Pigeon Point … greenbelt restoration, artists, community gatherings … and more to come, I’m sure! TR

    I’m happy to hear about the good events, but it also helps to hear about these types of situations as well. I moved to Highpoint recently and all was well but as summer has begun….my neighborhood has become a nightmare. “Security” is a joke and doesn’t appear much the management company can do unless you ” know the youths and what unit they live in”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
