Bellevue police investigating the Wednesday night shooting death of a man in the parking lot of an AMC theater arrested an 18-year-old “person of interest” in the killing Thursday morning.
Police said they were searching for a silver sedan following the shooting of the unidentified man and found it Thursday morning outside a Renton home. They made the arrest just before noon without incident. No other information about the arrest was available.
Police responded to the west parking lot of AMC Factoria 8 in the 3550 block of Factoria Boulevard Southeast around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday where they found the man with gunshot injuries, Bellevue police spokesperson Meeghan Black said. Officers believed they saw the suspect flee the parking lot in a silver sedan with tinted windows and damage to the car’s front passenger side.
The shooting victim, who was in his late teens or early 20s, was taken in critical condition to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was later pronounced dead.
