One dead after fatal shooting on 154th Avenue

Police questioning victim’s half brother.

Redmond police are investigating the fatal shooting of a 48-year-old male, found in the road with multiple gunshot wounds on June 20, according to police.

Police were called just after 6 a.m. to a house in the 6200 block of 154th Avenue Northeast. That is where the victim was discovered and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He died shortly after arriving. A suspect, the victim’s 33-year-old half brother, was located at the home and taken into custody shortly after the shooting. Three other adults were in the home at the time of the incident but no others were injured.

Police believe these three adults were also related to the victim, said Andrea Wolf-Buck, public information officer for the Redmond Police Department.

The investigation was in the early stages Thursday morning, she said, and there were no other outstanding suspects. Details leading up to the shooting have not yet been confirmed by police.

As of late Thursday morning, the street was closed at the block where the home was located on 154th Avenue Northeast, as police gathered evidence.

More details will be released, Wolf-Buck said.

The Reporter will update this story as more information becomes available.
