FOLLOWUP: Authorities identify man shot and killed Saturday

(WSB photo, Saturday)

4:02 PM: The man found shot to death in the 8400 block of 1st Avenue S. in southeast West Seattle on Saturday afternoon was identified today as 30-year-old Micaiah Kotthoff. The King County Medical Examiner says he died from a gunshot wound to the head. Police tell WSB that no one’s been arrested and there’s nothing new to say regarding the investigation; on Saturday, they said that a witness described the vehicle that took off, possibly after dumping the victim, only as “gray.” They also have no new information regarding whether the killing is linked to the non-fatal shooting whose victim turned up outside Arrowhead Gardens later in the day. If you have any information, the SPD tipline is 206-233-5000.

ADDED 4:31 PM: The most recent public record, from May, shows the victim with a Highland Park address.

    I hope they find who did this, very heart breaking. Nobody deserves to be killed in such a way πŸ’” & left like garbage

    Public records suggest that the victim has been in trouble with the law several times (mischief, theft, assault, arson, etc) so maybe he fell in with the wrong crowd. It’s unfortunate to see a young life gone astray.

Sorry, comment time is over.
