“Police have arrested three teenagers — ages 13, 16, and 17 — who are believed to have carried out last week’s deadly attack on a homeless camp in Seattle known as “The Jungle.” Two people were killed in the shooting; three more were hospitalized.
Last week, the authorities said they believed the victims were targeted; today, the AP reports that the police think the crime “stemmed from a drug-dealing dispute.”
Seattle police say that its SWAT, homicide and gang units executed warrants related to the case Monday afternoon. A gun that was recovered will be tested to determine whether it matches ballistic evidence from the crime scene.
Last week, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray called the area where the crime took place “unmanageable and out of control.””
