A man who killed his girlfriend at their Federal Way apartment Sunday night and then killed three others before he was fatally shot by police may have been determined to leave no witnesses, police said.
Federal Way Police Chief Brian Wilson said the city’s deadliest shooting began as a domestic-violence homicide around 9:35 p.m. when the gunman shot his 25-year-old girlfriend in the head in their apartment at Pinewood Village in the 33300 block of 18th Lane South.
The 27-year-old gunman then left the apartment with a duffle bag of his belongings and headed to the parking lot, Wilson said.
There he encountered two men, 23 and 46, who were standing next to a car. Wilson said police do not know what, if anything, the two men said to the gunman, but witnesses reported hearing shouting and yelling before both men were shot.
Police said witnesses told them that the shooter “executed” one of the men. One died next to the car, and the other was shot in the back as he tried to run away, police said.
And how will MORE laws help? The bad guy's won't have guns then? Then take away cars and drunk drivers can't kill the many many more that they kill. Take away alcohol that kills people, marriages and families. Please explain your logic. I believe you don't want a gun so no one else should have or need one.
