KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kirkland Police are asking for help to find Matthew Gordon, the suspect in a domestic violence assault investigation who is still at large.

A temporary felony warrant has been entered for Gordon on charges of first-degree Domestic Violence Assault and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.

Gordon is 5-foot-8, weighs 160 pounds with blue eyes. He could possibly be driving a silver 2010 Toyota Camry with a Washington disabled plate, license DP25833, or a black 2015 Yamaha motorcycle, Washington license 8D2710, or a Green Mercury Cougar with unknown plates.

If spotted please contact the Kirkland Police Department at NORCOM (425) 577-5656 or call 911.

A felony search warrant was served early Friday morning in the 13700 block of 116th Avenue NE. The warrant was a result of a domestic violence assault investigation during which suspect Gordon allegedly assaulted a female with a handgun, threatened to kill the victim and then fired the handgun inside the residence.

As the victim fled the area, the suspect fired the handgun at her vehicle, striking it once.

During the ensuing investigation, the police department learned that on several occasions the suspect has fired guns inside the residence and also fired a gun at other individuals at the home. Due to the inherent concern for community safety and the suspect’s dangerous behavior, SWAT officers served the warrant.

The officers called into the home but received no response. The officers executed the warrant, searching the home in a methodical fashion. The suspect was not located in the residence and Kirkland Detectives are presently collecting evidence at the home and actively following leads as to his whereabouts.

Officers seized evidence includes rifles, ammunition, body armor, military equipment, a tactical helmet and surveillance equipment.
