UPDATE: Boulevard Park Shooter Arrested In B.C.
VANCOUVER, B.C. â€“ The bad guy who fled after shooting a man dead in his SUV in Boulevard Park has been arrested in Vancouver, B.C, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.Â
A $2 milion dollar warrant, along with a rather odd psychedelic mugshot (see pic) was issued Wednesday for Cesar Trochez-Jimenez, 27, charging him with first-degree murder.
Vancouver police stopped him Wednesday night in a park and questioned him, prompting him to give the officers a fake name. Through further investigation, they discovered he was wanted in Seattle on a murder warrant, Urquhart said.
“One of their people put two and two together and knew we were looking for this guy,” sheriff’s Sgt. John Urquhart said. “That was some good police work up there.”
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the victim, 25, was found Monday behind the wheel of a 2000 Ford Explorer in an apartment complex parking lot at 1100 99th St. S. He’d been shot multiple times.
Police tracked the suspect to Blaine. They knew he’d spent the night in a motel room but he fled before they could find him. Urquhart was uncertain how soon he would extradited to King County.
The shooting apparently was over a woman, Urquhart said.
“It’s a story as old as time,” he said.
