Kevron Devontea Walker, 19, was arrested Wednesday in connection with a shooting on July 10 at 1470 Progress Way.

Adam had been born in Bellevue and spent part of his early life in California

Federal Way Mayor Jim Ferrell said the cases are not connected, except in one way that's difficult to change.

“It was about someone disrespecting someone else,” Ferrell said. “It's incredibly difficult to fathom they would throw away their life and someone else's life over some meaningless momentary dispute.”

Ferrell said they've implemented several changes to lower crime rates around the city, including adding cameras, more police officers, and opening two police substations. Still, with the recent violence, they’re going to look at what’s going on and see if more changes are needed.

“This was the first murder in the City of Federal Way this year but it's heartbreaking for the family of our victim. It's something we are committed to locating these people,” Ferrell explained.

Police confiscated store surveillance at the Dash Point shooting location. Singh Minhas said he's not sure how much it shows, but he’d like to see more officers on the streets, especially after a weekend like this.

Detectives are still looking for the suspects in both the shootings from Saturday morning and Friday night in the parking lot of Wild Waves.
