Police are asking for the public’s help to locate a suspect accused of shooting and killing a man March 10 in Renton.
According to Renton police, 21-year-old Oshea Larenze Williams is accused of shooting a 21-year-old victim multiple times as he sat in his car in the parking lot of the Formula One Fast Lube at 100 Rainier Ave. S.
The victim has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner as 21-year-old Jimm Route.
Just before 2 p.m. March 10, Renton police were called to reports of a shooting in the 100 block of Rainier Ave. S. where witnesses reported a gunman had fired several shots into a white vehicle occupied by a lone adult male who was parked in the business parking lot, according to police reports.
Once on scene, Renton officers and medical personnel located a vehicle with an unresponsive man sitting in the driver’s seat with injuries. Life-saving efforts were immediately conducted, but the victim died at the scene, police said.
Although a K-9 track was initiated, with assistance from Guardian One, and a temporary lockout at Renton High School was enacted, police were unable to locate the suspect.
The suspect, whom police now believe to be Williams, was last seen running northbound away from the area.
The investigation revealed the suspect had driven past the victim’s car several times before approaching on foot and shooting the victim to death, police stated.
There was no apparent provocation and motive is unknown.
Williams, who is known to frequent the Seattle area, is a black male, 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 130 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair.
Williams should be considered armed and dangerous. If spotted, police urge individuals to call 911.
