Man arrested after shooting tow truck employee from car in Renton (MA)


Recommended Posts

RENTON, Wash. – A 50-year-old man was arrested after shooting a tow truck employee from his car on Friday night.

The tow truck employee saw the suspect dump trash onto the tow company's property in the 200 block of Rainier Avenue South around 11:00 p.m. When the employee tried to confront the suspect, he drove away, firing two bullets that struck the employee.


The employee was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been treated and released.

The trash the suspect left behind was from a nearby restaurant, according to responding officers. Upon going to that restaurant, they discovered video footage showing the suspect and his car, who was a Renton Highlands resident.


Officers found his car parked near his residence. SWAT and hostage negotiators responded and the suspect surrendered without any trouble.
