Two suspects in the Seattle, Washington, deadly shooting that left one woman dead and injured seven others were caught in Las Vegas on Saturday, Feb. 2. They were booked into jail in Clark County, Nevada, according to Lt. Ken Nogle, days watch commander with the Las Vegas Metro Police, KOMO News reported.
“Personally, I’m glad they are in custody. … We know that after the mass shooting and the homicide, there was a lot of fear,” Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said in a news conference on Saturday evening.
William Toliver and Marquise Latrelle Tolbert, both 24, were arrested near the 3700 block of West Flamingo Blvd in Las Vegas after more than one week on the run.
A third suspect, Jamel Linonell Jackson, 21, who was hurt during the incident, was arrested last Thursday by authorities. He has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and was booked into King County Jail.
The shooting occurred on the afternoon of Jan. 22 at Third Avenue and Pine Street, a busy section of town near Westlake Park and was one of several violent crimes in a part of the city long known for drug use.
Witnesses heard gunfire and saw two men running down into the transit tunnel. According to Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, police and medics arrived at the scene within seconds but the two suspects got away.
A 50-year-old woman was killed, seven others were hurt, including a 9-year-old boy. All victims have been discharged from the hospital, except for a woman who is in serious condition in the ICU.
Sheila Coleman, the mother of Toliver, said in an exclusive KOMO interview last week she fears that the consequences will be worse for her son.
Toliver has 44 arrests, one felony conviction, and 18 gross misdemeanor convictions, records show.
Tolbert has 21 arrests, three felony convictions, and 12 gross misdemeanor convictions, according to public records.
Both Toliver and Tolbert are scheduled to appear in court at 8 a.m. Tuesday, CNN reported according to the roster.
