The King County Medical Examiner’s Office on Wednesday (Jan. 4) identified the victim of Tuesday night’s deadly shooting as Manuel A. Ortiz-Ornelas, 18, of Burien.
He died of multiple gunshot wounds.
As we previously reported, Ortiz-Ornelas was shot and killed in the 13700 block of Ambaum Blvd. SW Tuesday night (Jan. 3) around 6 p.m.
When police arrived they found himÂ lying on a walkway withÂ multipleÂ gunshot wounds. He was pronouncedÂ dead at the scene.
Witnesses told police three men were seen running from the area after the shooting. Three men matching the descriptions were stopped and detained nearby shortly after the shooting.
Detectives released two of those men last night but arrested the third, a 17-year old Burien male, and booked him into the Youth Services Center for Investigation of Murder.
Detectives have not yet released details about a motive for the shooting, but initially said they suspect it was gang related.
