King County sheriff’s investigators say a 28-year-old man fatally shot an acquaintance at a Ravensdale mobile-home park on Monday morning.

Deputies were called to the park in the 27200 block of Southeast Kent Kangley Road around 6:45 a.m. for a report of a shooting, said sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Stan Seo. When deputies arrived, they found the 56-year-old victim inside a trailer.

“We do have a suspect in custody; we believe he’s the only suspect,” Seo said. The suspect may also live in the mobile-home park, he said.

The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of first-degree murder. The man is not being named by The Seattle Times because he has not appeared before a judge for a probable-cause hearing.

Seo said investigators believe the suspect and the victim knew each other and that the shooting was the result of some sort of “relationship issue.”

A man and a woman believed to have witnessed the shooting told investigators that a “male acquaintance” shot the victim. The two identified the suspect to detectives.
