Police ask for public’s help in case of Sunday’s fatal Seattle shooting
SEATTLE — Seattle police are asking for the public’s help identifying the occupants of a 4-door red Honda Civic after the occupants shot two people near King Street station last Sunday night, killing 26-year-old Mykola Shevchuk.
Witnesses say an Asian man was driving the civic. They exchanged words with Shevchuk and his friend in a parking lot on South Washington S. near Occidental Park.
The victims left in their silver 540 BMW, and the red Honda Civic followed them out of the parking lot. When they got to 4th Aveue S and Royal Brougham, the occupants of the Civic fired at the BMW, police said. The victims continued driving to 4th Avenue S. and South Jackson Street by King Street Station where they were hit by more gunfire. The driver was wounded and Shevchuk was killed.
“Remember that this took place about 11 o’clock at night, so if you know anything about this incident — you just happened to see a car speed away. Specifically if you have a license plate, even if you may not think it`s important, it may be critical to solving this homicide,” said retired detective Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.
They offering a reward of up to $1,000 for any information that solves the case.
Homicide detectives are hoping witnesses there that night will contact them directly at 206-233-5000.
