Detectives from the Edmonds Police Department have released information on three suspects in a possible gang-related shooting over the weekend.

Shortly after midnight on Saturday, July 7, police responded to a call of gunfire behind Dairy Queen at 212th Street SW and 76th Avenue West, where several people had been fighting.

They found a 17-year-old boy from Shoreline shot twice in the lower body. He was taken to Harborview in Seattle and was last known to be in satisfactory condition, Sgt. Josh McClure said. At the time of the incident, they boy was with three other males, who have not been cooperative, McClure said.

McClure said detectives are looking into evidence that there may be some level of gang affiliation. Information to this point suggests that this may have been a prearranged meeting between the two groups over some type of earlier altercation, he said.

The suspects were last seen leaving the area in a white, four-door Honda with tinted windows. McClure said they are two black males and one white male, all ranging from in age from 18 to 22.

Police believe there may have been a fourth suspect driving the vehicle.

There was limited surveillance footage available from the area, and detectives are working with other local law enforcement to identify the suspects.

They are:

  • Suspect No. 1, gunman: Black male, 5'11 to 6 feet, 150-170 pounds. Was wearing an all-black sweatsuit.
  • Suspect No. 2: Black male, 6'2" to 6'3," 180-190 pounds. Has curly hair on top in the shape of a pineapple.
  • Suspect No. 3: While male, 5'7" to 5'8," 160-170 pounds.

If you have any information call the Edmonds PD tip line at 425-771-0212 or go to epdtips.edmondswa.gov.
