Renton man arrested in connection with fatal shooting at Redondo Square


On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Des Moines Police announced that they have arrested a 22-year old Renton man in connection with the fatal shooting of a 31-year old man at the Redondo Square shopping complex on Oct. 28.

Police say that the shooting happened on Sunday at approximately 9:14 p.m., when they responded to a 911 call of shots fired at the Redondo Square shopping complex located at 27005 Pacific Highway South.

The 911 call concerned a 31-year old male who was the victim of a gunshot injury, and had been found lying in the parking lot. Responding EMS personnel arrived at the scene, but their efforts to revive the victim were unsuccessful. The victim, who last lived in Tacoma, was pronounced dead at the scene.

During the course of this investigation surveillance video was obtained from a variety of businesses located within the Redondo Square. This surveillance video captured a portion of this incident as it unfolded. This included surveillance video of the suspect vehicle entering and leaving the scene.

On Oct. 30, portions of the recovered surveillance video were provided to local media for release. As a result of the release of the surveillance video a suspect was identified. He is a 22-year old male last known to reside in the City of Renton.

On November 6th 2018 Des Moines Detectives were assisted by members from the US Marshall Services as well as staff from the Washington State Department of Corrections for the purpose of locating the suspect. The suspect in this case was located in the City of Renton. He was taken into custody without incident. He will be booked into the King County Jail for investigation of Homicide.

Chief Ken Thomas said:

“It was due to the tireless efforts of our Detectives following up on a tip provided by a member of the community which allowed for the successful resolution of this case.”

This case has been referred to the King County Prosecutors Office.
