Updated with video: Detectives have released photos and video from this morning’s shooting at the gas station on 15th Ave. in Ballard.
Police say the suspect, seen here raising his handgun on surveillance video, shot and killed the clerk moments later. The gunman escaped before police arrived, and detectives say he’s armed and dangerous.
Police describe him as “an unknown race male in his 20’s, 5’10” and skinny. The suspect was last seen wearing a dark snowboard cap with gold on it that reads, ‘Burton’, a dark-colored bandana with stars on it, sunglasses, a dark-colored jacket with a multi-colored pattern, dark pants, black shoes with a white stripe, and carrying a black satchel bag.”
This is the surveillance video of the suspect. (It does not show the shooting itself, but be warned it does show the moment just before the shooting.) If you see the suspect, you’re asked to call 911 immediately.
