Yikes. ***For Immediate Release*** October 16, 2022 Trooper Kelsey Harding (425) 923-6244 Kelsey.harding@wsp.wa.gov Twitter: @wspd7pio WSP Seeking Assistance in locating Suspect Vehicle from Shooting SKYKOMISH, WA Ė The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is actively investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in Skykomish, Wash., on Oct 15, 2022, at approximately 7:48 p.m. on state Route 2 near milepost 63. The incident started as road rage between the victim vehicle, silver 2014 Kia Sorrento and the suspect vehicle, Subaru SUV. When the driver of the Kia attempted to create distance between their vehicle and the Subaru, an occupant from the Subaru shot through the rear passenger window of the Kia. One of the passengers in the Kia, a 24-year-old DARRINGTON, WA female, was tragically struck by the gun fire and was pronounced deceased on scene. The Subaru fled the scene in an unknown direction. WSP detectives are requesting help in locating the suspect vehicle. The suspect vehicle was described by witnesses as a dark colored Subaru SUV with a roof mounted cargo basket on top. If you see any vehicles that match the description you are asked to call or email Detective Sergeant Michael Marken at (360) 654-1140 or Michael.Marken@wsp.wa.gov. Your assistance is appreciated as we work to locate the suspect vehicle in this tragic incident.

We saw a vehicle similar to this one a few weeks ago westbound on 2 in the fire zone passing the line of cars we were in and driving like a maniac. Also, didnít someone on the forum post a video of an SUV like this driving through the fire zone last month?

Sad state of affars, sorry to hear of the families loss. People think they need to travel 65-70+ on 2 if there is a fire posting 35 MPH. Heaven forbid you drive the speed limit. Not to say that was the cause. I find it interesting that it stated: "occurred in Skykomish, Wash., on Oct 15, 2022, at approximately 7:48 p.m. on state Route 2 near milepost 63." When Skykomish is at MP 49ish so that would put it closer to Stevens Pass where it occured.

Yes, that's only a mile west of the pass by old faithful. The road's 4 lanes there.

Hopefully people called 911 when Nancy Ann mentioned those idiots in the Subaru.. And hopeful some one can come forward with dash cam video...king 5 and others should put out a request for dashcams from that time of incident... Why the hell don't they put up a simple camera in those zones??

There are traffic cameras along that section of highway. I'm not sure how often they take a picture though... but I'm sure the police are sifting through that.

I'm surprised that the Subaru SUV driver was the shooter. I know I'm stereotyping, but when I think of that make/model I think of passive aggressive road rage, not homicidal. I guess you never really know what kind of crazy is behind the wheel. Nancy, I wonder if it'd be worth mentioning that to WSP? I thought the video was of a bicyclist riding through the fire zone but maybe I'm misremembering. PS - apologies to Joey, looks like he posted about this in the saloon before I did.

Not only a Subaru driver, but they had a roof mounted cargo basket on top as well. Basically, a NWhiker or Washington Hiker and Climber Facebook person is the suspect.

Even if we have stereotypes like this because they're right a lot of the time (enough to notice a pattern in the first place) they're also just cars and everybody needs a car. But yeah my stereotype of Subaru road rage is more like they'll post about how bad you are later on Facebook.

Ever consider that the car may have been stolen?

Itís being reported that the shooting vehicle was ahead and the shot came from the back seat.

I will look back through my pictures and try to figure out which day it was that we saw a similar vehicle with aggressive behavior. I was thinking that there are several traffic cams which they would have been recorded on as they worked their way down the highway that day, but WSP has already looked as well, Iím sure.

Am I reading it wrong does it say the Kia was trying to create distance meaning going faster and then the Subaru shot thru the Kia's rear window. This striking the victim.
