Police say they’ve arrested Christopher Burrus, the suspect wanted for attempted murder in Ballard on November 7th.
Burrus was picked up by the Mountlake Terrace Police Department in a traffic stop just before midnight yesterday, SPD said. He was turned over to Seattle Police.
Police say Burrus doused a man with a flammable liquid and set him on fire in the 4500 block of Leary Way. Kasey Busch barely survived the attack, and he’s make steady progress in a long recovery.
Busch told KOMO TV he had a heated argument over stolen tools with Burrus’ ex-girlfriend.
Detectives believed Burrus was still in the area. They had received several possible sightings over the last few months.
