SEATTLE - Officers with the Seattle Police Department arrested a man suspected in a drive-by shooting in Seattle’s High Point neighborhood Wednesday.
Just before 4 p.m., police received reports that someone was firing shots from a silver Dodge Charger in the 3500 block of Southwest Morgan Street. Police said the car sped away following the shooting.
Responding officers found the car in the 6400 block of 31st Avenue South unoccupied and stopped.
According to police, the car had multiple bullet holes in the windshield and there were shell casings scattered across the seats.
“Police contacted the registered owner, who said he was out of state and his brother was the only one with access to the vehicle. Officers were able to call the suspect, who agreed to turn himself in,” Seattle police said in a blotter post.
The suspect was taken into custody without further incident at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Othello street.
In a search of the suspect’s home, police said they located a firearm hidden in a rolled-up rug.
The 37-year-old suspect was transported to police headquarters and booked into King County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and drive-by.
