Two men on motorcycles shot at police as they were serving a search warrant at a house in Tukwila Thursday morning, Aug. 27, and police are seeking a suspect named Kevin M. Vaughn, 26, a known gang member who may be affiliated with the home where the warrant was being served.
Nobody was hit by the gun shots, and the suspects escaped after the shooting in the 14900 block of 51st Ave South, located just off the southbound lanes of I-5.
Police say the incident happened around 6:30 a.m., when deputies were about to serve a warrant on the home for evidence of car theft. Police say that two motorcyclists fired at least seven shots at them, then fled south on I-5.
Vaughn is described as a 26-year old white male, about 6’1″ tall, with brown hair, blue eyes, and he has the word “HATRED” tattooed above his forehead. Police say he is a member of the Resurrection motorcycle gang.
If you have seen Vaughn, please call 911 immediately.
