VIDEO: Argument Preceded Fatal Shoreline Shooting of Man, Still Unknown Who Pulled Trigger

A man and woman are in custody in the shooting death of a man they knew

A man and woman are in custody of the King County Sheriff's Office after an argument turned deadly in the yard of a home at 145th St. and Densmore Ave. N. before noon on Thursday.

It's unknown who pulled the trigger and shot a man in his 40s. The King County Medical Examiner 's office is on the scene. King County Sheriff's Major Crimes detectives are investigating. All parties involved in the argument and shooting apparently knew each other, King County Sheriff Steve Strachan said.

Shoreline Police received a call at 11:54 a.m. about a disturbance and the shooting occurred while officers were en route to the scene, Strachan said.

A woman who lives down the street on Densmore Ave. N. said she heard arguing before the gunshots.

"I heard fighting and then I heard 'pop, pop, pop," she said.

She added that she had witnessed what she considered suspicious activity around the home.

The police have shut down 145th St. from Wallingford Ave. N. to Ashworth Ave. and traffic is being diverted.

Hello Grant... I just got chills when I read your post... I am so very sorry for the loss of your friend.. Donnie was the first person who I met in Seattle, who I thought was a long lost friend from the past.. He had an old school about him that I adored. He became very good friends with my husband and tought him a lot. I never saw a mean bone in his body.. It was his rough "Bostonian" exterior that caught my attention and that drew me too him.. These two have a record and I have it posted. Two over the top, drug addicted, sociopathic murderers who will get what they deserve...you may contact me anytime.. And so can who ever else needs me to clarify who the two people were who killed our friend. phxbulldog1@hotmail.com

Johnny Fischer... who are you and what do you know???? NOTHING... let me fill you in... http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2008824230_slaying07m.htmlI Read for yourself... Tristan Smith was convicted of a previous involvment of a murder. Being someone who knew ALL of the people invovled I can assure you that evan though Donnie had a "past".. it was nothing of a violent past.. Petty crimes are not the same as violent crimes....

You are a slanderous piece of shit. Get you facts straight, or go see your therapist! You never knew me, or the other lady living in the house. MY HOUSE UNLIVABLE?! and your yard full of junk was fucking beautiful! Thank You by the way for hiding in your house, when Donnie tried to murder me, and I was yelling for help. You are a coward and a loser. Find a better way to fill your time and keep my name out of your mouth.--Rachel (the VICTIM)
