Police continue investigations of 154th Avenue shooting death

No charges filed yet, suspect released.

No charges have been filed yet, as investigators are still working to sort through the details surrounding the fatal shooting of 48-year-old Jonathan Fagerlie.

Fagerlie was found with multiple gunshot wounds outside his family home in the 6200 block of 154th Avenue Northeast, just after 6 a.m. on June 20. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and died shortly after arriving.

Investigators have confirmed that an argument between Fagerlie and his 33-year-old half-brother, the suspected shooter, happened before any shots were fired.

The victim’s half brother was found inside the home and taken into custody. Two other family members were inside the home at the time of the shooting. Neither are believed to be involved.

The suspect was released from jail on Tuesday, June 25, after the 72-hour hold allowed by law. Police and prosecutors have yet to determine appropriate charges and the investigation remains ongoing.
