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.

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